    A born entrepreneur, business speaker Kevin O’Leary is one of the world’s most recognized and respected financial experts. As a public speaker, Kevin O’Leary offers live audiences the bracing, entertaining, and highly informed observations for which he has become so well known.

    The son of a UN official, Kevin O’Leary spent his childhood traveling the globe. Returning to his native Canada, he earned a BA with honors from the University of Waterloo and his MBA from the University of Western Ontario. A stint as a television producer encouraged him to co-found his first company, Special Event Television.

    Always alert to opportunity, O’Leary founded Softkey Software Products in 1986 and grew it into a tech giant. Thirteen years later, at the height of the dot-com bubble, he authored a masterstroke by selling SoftKey for $3.7 billion. His investment in StorageNow Holdings proved another enormous success.

    O’Leary’s business savvy made him rich; his candor and charisma made him a star. In 2006, he appeared in the first season of the CBC’s Dragon’s Den as one of five venture capitalists. Three years later, he helped launch the show’s US version, the overwhelmingly popular Shark Tank. His frank yet amiable approach has made him one of the most popular investors on each show.

    Through O’Leary Ventures, O’Leary continues to build on his remarkable track record. His portfolio emphasizes environmentally friendly investments; O’Leary often refers to himself as an “eco-preneur.” He is also the bestselling author of several books on money management for couples and families.
