Mike Reid, Dent Co-Founder and CEO of Dent Canada, speaks with Tim Ray, award winning serial entrepreneur and the man behind Carnivore Club – the world’s first cured meats subscription service and JetSavvy, the new technology based company that focuses on private aviation. 

Tim pulls back the curtain on what it takes to develop creative marketing campaigns that actually get results for an eCommerce brand. Why his initial business FoodScrooge, was acquired in a 7 figure exit after just 10 months and how he conquered the room – twice  – on Dragon’s Den.
