Over the coming weeks, MaRS will profile various entrepreneurs from Portraits of Innovation, our new photography exhibition showcasing Ontario’s diverse tech leaders. Today we speak with Mallorie Brodie, co-founder and CEO of Bridgit Solutions.
Mallorie Brodie has some advice for would-be entrepreneurs: if you want to thrive in any sector, try working with people from other sectors. She should know.
Before co-founding Bridgit Solutions — a Kitchener-based startup that streamlines the management and administration of construction projects — Mallorie was studying comparative literature at Western University. Not the nuts-and-bolts training you’d expect for a construction-industry executive, but an important one still. “My education completely informed my research when building Bridgit,” she says. “Being able to think critically, be it in the arts or on site, is an invaluable skill.”
