My name is Chris Kolmatycki. I am a Sagitarius born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I’m a marketer, a business owner, a perpetual student of international business, and a proud citizen of Halifax, Nova Scotia. I’m also a statistics (ok, really baseball) fan, a media addict, and a proponent of positive change.
I moved from Toronto to Halifax to attend Dalhousie University and haven’t looked back. I’ve worked in investment banking for RBC, external relations for Dalhousie’s Faculty of Management, operations management for the research and development department of Research In Motion, designed video games for HB Studios in Lunenburg, before starting my adventure as an entrepreneur by founding Denote Communications, Profile Halifax Magazine, and now FundMetric.
In 2011, I was selected to represent the province of Nova Scotia as a trade ambassador for Junior Team Canada. With other Canadian youth, I was tasked with building international trade between Canada and Nova Scotia, and Indonesia/Malaysia. You can view my experience on the trip here. International trade has always been a passion of mine and I am excited about bringing my enthusiasm for it to Halifax and help our great city live up to its potential.
In 2012, I started getting into amateur film-making and in 2013 started getting more seriously involved in film production. You can see some of my work on my IMDB profile.
There’s a good chance that this page will always be somewhat out of date but you can check out a somewhat comprehensive list of the things I’ve done on my LinkedIn profile.
This site intends to be a mix of my personal interests, thoughts on fundraising, postings on the marketing and advertising industry, and general posts about entrepreneurship in Nova Scotia and the world.
