Marc Castel is the co-founder and CEO of Fiix, a Toronto-based enterprise SaaS scale-up that has adopted a triple bottom line of People Profit and Planet. Fiix measures its overall ‘bottom line” as the sum of its impact in each of these categories.
Recently Fiix became B-Corp certified and has come to understand that doing good is good for business – driving higher revenue, greater employee engagement and higher retention. In 2016 he made corporate social responsibility (CSR) a key pillar of Fiix’s culture and growth strategy with the ambitious goal of making CSR a normal part of every tech business no matter the size.
Castel’s passion for harnessing the true potential of business as a force for good has been shaped by over 30 years founding and running businesses that range from enterprise SaaS to medtech, manufacturing to astronomy, and music to wine. His authentic and human approach to his work as a tech mentor and angel investor has touched countless startups in the region, where he has openly shared his knowledge and tools to help companies raise their game and win together.
