Growing up in Halifax gave Iaian a deep love for the ocean. And his background as a surfer has helped prepare him for the trials and tribulations of being an entrepreneur.

In business—much like in surfing—knowing when to ride the wave is incredibly important, as is having the resilience to get back into the fray and try again when you get knocked down. Iaian credits his time at Saint Mary’s University earning his MBA with helping to instill this knowledge in him.

Now, his company Swell Advantage helps other people explore their passion for the ocean by making marinas and working waterfronts around the world more accessible to everyone through innovative technology.
