Justin’s goal in creating new companies with different technology is to build solutions based on the needs of the consumer. Justin Shimoon graduated from Carleton University located in Ontario with a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering in Computer Systems Networking and Communications and from there, he went on to start his first company, Sitebrand.
