As recently featured on the Telfer School of Management website, Myron Gomes is a recent BCom graduate from the Telfer School of Management specializing in finance. Upon graduation, Myron co-founded Spoonity, a software company with a unique loyalty rewards platform for the restaurant industry. He recently partnered with Jag Ghuman, another Telfer alumnus and Ottawa franchisee for Freshii restaurants. Jag has agreed to run Spoonity in his two Ottawa Freshii locations. Myron hopes to expand Spoonity into other Freshii locations in the near future.
Additionally, Spoonity was recently accepted into the University of Ottawa’s StartUp Garage for the summer of 2012. The StartUp Garage is an initiative of the Ottawa Technology Transfer Network (OTTN) to foster and support student entrepreneurship in the Ottawa area. This opportunity also includes $20,000 in funding, office space at Invest Ottawa and other mentorship opportunities.
Spoonity has also been invited to appear on the next season of Dragon’s Den, airing this Fall on CBC.
The future is looking bright for this startup. Congratulations to Myron and his team at Spoonity!
