Watch the BOBs 2015 keynote video featuring Aydin Mirzaee, an Ottawa-based technology entrepreneur who in 2008 co-founded a company called Chide.it. After some iterations and pivots, the company focused on online surveys and online competitions, gaining more than 100,000 customers around the world. In August 2014, Aydin sold the company, then called Fluidware, to U.S. giant SurveyMonkey for an undisclosed sum of money.
