Kirk Simpson

Nominated for the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards in:

A digital strategist and innovator, Kirk has worked with some of Canada's biggest media and corporate brands in strategic alliances, business development, sales and marketing. His passion is building talented, unconventional teams, and breaking new ground with products that drive audience, sales and profitability. Kirk is a three-time entrepreneur. In between his start-ups, he logged many accomplishments with large firms like Quebecor and small firms like Key Media.


Kirk Simpson contributed to this market by co-founding a company that liberates small business owners from back-office tasks. As a three-time entrepreneur, Kirk is intimately familiar with the pain small business owners feel when faced with an overwhelming amount of back-end work. By creating simple to use software designed for this market, Kirk is solving this market’s biggest pain point, starting with the over 250,00 small business owners already signed up for Wave.

Continually striving to achieve more, inspiring his growing team of employees, and thinking of new ways to ease the pain points of the over 250,000 small business owners who’ve signed up for Wave Accounting, Kirk inspires those in this space to challenge the status quo. Refusing to embody the cautious mindset generally attributed to Toronto entrepreneurs, Kirk altered the city’s entrepreneurial landscape by inspiring others to aim to make Toronto the new global hub of technological innovation.
