  While studying at SFU John and Igor co-founded their company Mobify.

While they were waiting at a bus stop on their way to SFU they wondered—why can’t we get the transit schedule via SMS so we don’t have to wait? From that simple idea they started a company to create an open platform that would “mobify” the web; to make it universally available to people in useful, lovable ways that help their lives. Today, a full team of people including many co-op students, shares the founders’ vision and passion to mobify the web and create One Web, Everywhere.
