About Jay Vasantharajah

Jay started his career off at Deloitte as a consultant in Toronto. It wasn’t long before he left the corporate world to launch his first business, a PPC agency. His agency managed millions of dollars of ad spend for large clients and won several awards. He used the profits from the PPC agency to start an e-commerce business which has grown into a 7-figure a year business. Along the way, he's also reinvested cash flows from his businesses into private multi-family real estate in the Toronto area and tech start-ups like Supercast, a podcast subscription software company. Today, he is actively looking to make more angel investments and acquire online businesses and in the creator economy — basically anything that can help creators like podcasters, youtubers, and IndieHackers create and manage their creative businesses.
