Hi, I’m Christopher Gimmer. I’m a growth marketer and serial entrepreneur.

Beyond growing businesses, I’m an avid investor, world traveler and watch enthusiast.


In 2009 I graduated from Carleton University with a major in finance and a minor in economics. I then started my career in finance and worked as a financial analyst for the federal government.

Eventually, I caught the entrepreneurship bug and left the government to pursue my own projects. Over the next few years, my co-founder Marc and I launched several websites and software products which collectively grew into a thriving business.

Current and Past Projects

StockSnap.io – Beautiful free stock photos (Sold in 2017)
