Dax Dasilva is one of the entrepreneurs that pull off everything.
Founder of Montreal-based and extremely successful Lightspeed, Dax eventually did a full 180. In 2015, he creates Never Apart, a Montreal-based non-profit cultural organization that looks to bring positive social change and acceptance of others through art and culture. Montreal, a beacon for multiculturalism and a natural hub for culture and creativity, seems to be the perfect environment for such an undertaking.
Together, Dax Dasilva and Bradley Grill will discuss this inspiring and informative career.
