ABOUT Shannon Ferguson: Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) 2020 Fellow | Top 100 Finalist Startup of the Year 2018 & 2019 | RC100 2019 Winner | 1st Place Get in the Ring Ottawa 2019 | 1st Place CIC Pitchfest 2018 | 2nd Place SaaS North 2018.

It was our journey in the sports industry that gave us our light bulb moment to create FanSaves and getting to help so many different teams and organizations has been a dream come true.

Shannon’s passion for sponsorship sales and marketing is paired equally with her love of writing, design and content creation. Her background in digital marketing has helped propel FanSaves forward quickly as we grow across North America and her public speaking skills have allowed her to pitch our startup on stages across the world and to important investors.

Her other love is journalism and being a television host allowed her to meet so many amazing people and learn about their stories. While she is currently focusing all her efforts on growing her startup, she hopes to one day have the chance to be in front of the camera again.

Also on my To Do List: Write a book.
