It All Started on a Sunny Day in August 2003
when the High School lacrosse coach at St. Joes had invited the top lacrosse recruits for the incoming freshman class to his summer camp. The 3 of us, Mike, Rob & Steve, were the only ones to show up and that was the first day we met. Over the next 4 years we each excelled in sports becoming the captains of our respective teams; Rob in hockey, Mike in lacrosse and Steve in soccer.
More important than that, we built a strong friendship together through high school and college constantly talking about the businesses we would one day build and the dreams that we had. Well, in 2012, when graduating college, life hit us all right in the face and the pressure of society and surroundings pushed us to each get jobs in the corporate world. Mike was in retail real estate development; Rob in environmental consulting and Steve was in business development for an engineering company. In terms of society, we had great jobs and were on the path the success, but we did not see it this way.
