Bruce Croxon: Investing during a Crisis, Entrepreneurship and Celebrity


Long before “social networking” became a buzzword, Bruce made his mark as a digital pioneer by co-founding Lavalife in 1988. Under his direction, this early tech start-up grew into the marquee brand in online dating with over 2,000,000 users (and countless successful  marriages!). After its spectacular rise and with the support of his partners, he led the sale of the company for a stunning 180 million dollars.


Bruce is now taking his expertise to a new level; he currently helms Round13 Capital, a company dedicated to investing in growth-stage digital companies. He also holds personal investments in the health & wellness sector, owning Vida, a chain of high-end holistic spas on the West coast of Canada. He is a shareholder in Balzac's Coffee, a fast growing Ontario chain of gourmet coffee shops.


As an investor on CBC’s Dragons’ Den, Bruce added a broad range of businesses and products to his portfolio and is now the co-host of BNN's The Disruptors.


In this episode, podcast host Jamie Allison talks with Bruce about how his approach to investing changes during a time of crisis, his advice for entrepreneurs, his own high performance habits, dealing with notoriety and his approach to balance.
