Amazing things Alexandre's made
In 2004, before Kijiji was born, I launched a free (ad-supported) car classified in Canada (similar business model that was later employed by Kijiji). By mid-2005, it was a second largest auto classified site in Canada (second only behind Autotrader). At the peak, the car site contained nearly 250,000 active car listings from over 5,000 dealerships in the US and Canada.

In 2010, I started an ERP consulting firm that went to become amongst the top 3 firms in the same niche in Canada by 2014.

2014, I started a short-lived (due to challenges with the software supplier), yet very profitable professional services company that generated seed capital for me to invest in Meemim.
