Meet Chris Defour

Chris is a 27-year-old entrepreneur born and raised in Montreal. At the tender age of 12, Chris began playing competitive squash, a sport that propelled him to do a 4-year stint of time at a boarding school in the USA. While at The Hotchkiss School, Chris’s interest in design thinking and architecture grew into a curiosity for entrepreneurship and marketing. Upon graduation in 2012 and before starting university at John Molson School of Business, Chris and his best friend founded a company called DevBuddy.

While growing DevBuddy, Chris has gotten the chance to work on a wide range of projects in a multitude of industries. As Chief Marketing Officer at DevBuddy, Chris taught himself how to create and grow brands online while leveraging the latest technology and strategies for clients (see all skills here). Today, DevBuddy manages over 60 retainer clients and continues to work on hand-picked projects where Chris and his partner see lots of growth opportunities.

In 2017, he co-founded 2 companies with 2 of his best friends: WorkAxle and SaaSquash Technologies. Both are software-oriented companies that allow Chris to apply his marketing skills and experiment in the world of enterprise SaaS software.

Since 2017, WorkAxle is already being used in over 1,500 business locations around the globe and has already acquired world-class enterprise clients that earn billions in revenue.

As of 2020, Chris has been working very hard with his team to develop new blockchain-based infrastructure and SaaS businesses to shape the industry for decades to come. His goal is to provide as much economic good to the world as he possibly can as a tech entrepreneur.
