Obie goes from startup woes to major growth and acquisition success!

Do you dream of one day taking your brilliant idea to the next level? Maybe someone will even pay you a lot of money for that business?

Well, it’s definitely possible, but it’s not always easy.  It means serious dedication, filled with ups and downs and it’s certainly not for everyone.  Chris Buttenham, founder of Obie, knows this all too well.

From founding the company and realizing he didn’t know a thing, heading to Innovation Factory for support and participating in programs across North America, to pivoting numerous times and weathering downturns including a global pandemic, it all paid off when Obie was acquired by Lessonly. Chris is an entrepreneur and innovator who knows first hand that the journey was far from easy.

Listen to the episode here to find out about Chris’s journey with Obie and how they did it all.
