About Haik

I have 15+ years business experience and a strong background in mathematics.

I lead a team of experienced professionals that creates a solution for grocery retailers enabling them to collect anonymous data about customers' movement in the stores. The solution helps the retailers to optimize stores' layouts, improve customer experience and increase the revenue. Our solution is linked with Big Data, Business Intelligence and Business Analytics. The target customers are grocery retailers operating in supermarket format, and the target markets are the US and Canada.

We are in a seed stage and in the process of registering the company with MaRS Innovation Lab Toronto. We have built a prototype of our product which is now being tested. The advantages of our solution are: differenciated technology and easy installation.

We are looking for a co-founder for a long-term partnership who is a
-b2b sales and marketing specialist with domain knowledge and a network,
-effective negotiator,
-strategic decision maker

My business vision
Doing a business is dealing with uncertainty. Uncertainty is usually associated with high risks; however, it also contains big opportunities. Running a successful business is finding the opportunities that are linked with calculated and justified risks.
A startup business is a dealing with day-to-day problems. No matter how big or small the problems are, the business should find a solution for them. Finding a solution means finding a complete and an on time solution which can be efficiently implemented. And, it should not be just a solution; it should be the best solution.
