"You Gotta Have Grit" with Erik Simins of Workwolf

Today I’m thrilled to welcome Erik Simins to the show, who is the CEO and CO-Founder of Workwolf and is a force in the Toronto startup scene. 

At Workwolf, Erik’s team has developed a hiring software that finds, screens, and validates quality candidates better than humans can. Using proprietary technology to screen and verify backgrounds, the platform automates the recruitment process, bringing unmatched efficiencies to the employment market.

But Erik has been driving innovation in Canada for more than a decade, having founded his first 8-figure company in 2011 with the healthcare staffing firm MAGNUS, which has since partnered with the Canadian government and hundreds of customers across North America.

It’s safe to say that Erik not only understands the tech and talent ecosystem in Canada, but has played a hand in steering it over the course of his career.

I’ll leave it to Erik to share the details and give his take on the state of startups, what it takes to make it as an entrepreneur and the incredible work that has gone into building his businesses.
