After a significant investment into HootSuite last week, OMERS Ventures is back on our radar, this time adding Haroon F. Mirza to the team as their first Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR). In this role, Haroon will contribute to the identification and execution of investment opportunities in the Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) sectors.
Prior to joining OMERS Ventures, Haroon was Director of Business Development – Anonymous Viewer Analytics at Intel Corp. Before that, he was the Co-Founder and CEO of CognoVision, an award-winning retail analytics provider. CognoVision was named Canada’s Most Innovative Company in 2009, and was acquired by Intel in September 2010. Haroon has also served as a consultant for the Carleton University Foundry Program, evaluating technology startups and obtaining pre-seed capital to commercialize on-campus technologies.
