" I first met Peter Burns around 2005, been so long I don't have the exact year, but it's been at least that. Peter loves entrepreneurism and is truly at heart a builder and connector. When I met Peter he was establishing a "Club e" which was an incubator for startup businesses, any and all businesses. Peter put together regular monthly events where like minded people got together and shared, some did business with each other and others we remained friends. It was a fantastic experience for me as a young semi-seasoned entrepreneur.
Since 2005 I would sometimes reach out to Peter, he remembered me, he opened up his contact book to help me, with no reciprocity, just open heart to help. He has helped me more than once in the past, for that I was able to move forward and accomplish my goals a little quicker, thank you Peter.
Peter today is still a go getter and has a larger heart than ever. I recently reached out to Peter in early 2017 for some reason, don't know why, but summer 2017 I was looking for something specific. During the conversation I asked him "do you know anyone who is in the ..... industry" and he says "yes" so I introduced him to a friend / business guy of mine named Jerry, and in the past week or two these two guys have put together something so amazing, their combined efforts will help new entrepreneurs grow a business faster than ever in many ways never seen possible.
My hats off to peter Burns, long time business colleague and friend. Peter Than You from the bottom of my Heart!"
