President, TSG Medical and Co-Founder, Liftoff Capital

Peter’s career started spawning sturgeon and building fish hatcheries in Barbados, he then went on to help launch Viagra in Canada. Peter sold pharmaceuticals for many years all the time trying to figure out how to get into the pharma business for himself. I transitioned into surgical sales because he could envision setting up his own business in the surgical sales less capital intensive business. Peter worked for several years for Boston Scientific selling surgical equipment in Atlantic Canada. When the time was right, he left Boston Scientific and set up his own medical sales Agency in Atlantic Canada. This has since morphed into a National Company Peter founded called TSG Medical. Currently, it is Canadians largest independent micro surgical company. As president of TSG Medical, he has also been involved with the founding and inventing of the ND3 medical device – more to come on this very soon. To cap it all off Dr Jake Swan and Peter co-founded Liftoff Capital 1 year ago. It’s the worlds only social media site that helps to match entrepreneurs with investors. Think of it as Facebook meets LinkedIn smashed together with Eharmony.
