President & Chief Visionary Officer
Dave is a serial entrepreneur. He loves a challenge. His favourite moment of the day is when he meets someone new, figures out what they need, and finds a way to give it to them. Because at the end of the day, Dave believes that even the most lone wolf independent entrepreneur needs to remember that any business is the business of relationships. He believes technology supports work and life, but people mediate that relationship. Because of this philosophy, Dave has a vision to integrate digital and physical real estate. This is proven as he is also managing partner of the commercial building that 7L calls home @7LabattPlace. Dave not only provides office space to aspiring technology and creative organizations, he inspires a culture of thought leadership and innovative thinking to @7LabattPlace community in the gentrified downtown east end of Toronto.

Cassius has been heavily involved in the internet industry professionally since 1997, yet his passion for computing takes us back to the late 1980s on his trusty TRS-80. Having gained a wealth of knowledge and experience working at Netcom Canada, AT&T Canada, and having managed the 10 million user support department of the legendary Hotline Communications Ltd., Cassius' expertise and dedication are second to none.
His first hand experience providing great support, handling rapid growth, and remaining on the leading edge of today's technologies are just a small part of what makes Cassius a force to be reckoned with in the hosting industry.
The ultimate beta tester, Cassius has earned himself the nickname "Crashius Cassius" and the title "Destroyer of Worlds".
