It all started when Ben got bored.
Officially founded in Summer 2016, Benifactor Capital exists to be a home for entrepreneurial leaders to co-create and manage great organizations. After six years of growing Frontier into a successful business, our CEO Ben had a vision to structure an organization for the future that could be home to not just Frontier, but an assortment of new ventures. It was the beginning of a journey to create a purpose-driven conglomerate.
Two years later Benifactor has found several amazing leaders to run its companies, and has begun the journey of increasing, one by one, our portfolio of outstanding organizations. Core values are established, a framework for managing organizations is in place, and process for new venture creation and management training is underway.
We’re going to do what it takes to help good organizations be great.
The “B” Team
As CEO, Ben is the leader’s leader. He oversees the General Managers, finds new leaders, and works to build systems to equip leaders with what they need to be successful. His main areas of focus are culture and capital.
Ben founded Frontier Marketing Company in 2010 at age 24. Today Frontier has a dozen employees raising over $10 million in revenue per year with clients across North America.
For several years Ben has worked as a Marketing Strategist in the financial services industry, helping to generate higher ROI advertising spending, improve product offering, and direct capital investment.
In 2008, at age 22, he and Heath Johns founded Urbantastic, a website service dedicated to connecting skilled volunteers with organizations in need. You can read about it in a feature article in the Globe and Mail.
Ben graduated from Royal Roads University's Bachelor of Commerce in Entrepreneurial Management program at just 20 and later earned his Certified Management Accounting designation (has since retired from it).
