Aman Samra has a long career history in growing ventures, with a specialty in finance and a thorough understanding of the entrepreneurial journey. With a business education, he has a passion to help actualize and connect with entrepreneurship in creative and game-changing ways.
Having experienced ventures from every angle, Samra’s career has taken him to work in finance roles with tech clients of all sizes. Through his past positions at BioConnect and Sampler, he has led processes for Series A, FedDev funding, and Series B funding for scaling ventures. Supporting operations and finance functions, Samra designed company KPI’s and led monthly sessions on performance, trajectory, and strategy.
Continuing his involvement and investment in the lives of founders and entrepreneurs, Samra is the creator, operator, and co-host of a tech-based podcast called Generation Hustle, highlighting real-life founder stories to humanize and normalize the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. Generation Hustle focuses on sharing the stories of today’s hustlers and business owners making an impact in their industries, weaving a narrative journey about innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the movements that they have built. With community connection at the forefront of his focus, the Generation Hustle podcast recently launched the #smallbizfightback campaign to highlight and promote Ontario small businesses during the challenging times and detrimental impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. His well-rounded experience with ventures and wholesome connection to what it truly means to be a founder will allow him to thrive as TechAlliance’s new Startup Advisor, working directly with ventures and their goals to help them grow.
