Brendan Lucas is the Co-Founder and CTO of Win-Win Homesharing. Brendan was a credit short of his Computer Systems Engineering Degree at Carleton University when inspiration struck. Long frustrated by the high cost of student housing and compelled by the chance to create intergenerational friendships, Brendan co-founded Win-Win Homesharing in 2019. An avid coder since junior high, Brendan has done everything from database optimization to app development at the Royal Bank of Canada. Brendan's entrepreneurial drive, coding skills, and optimism have helped to propel Win-Win Homesharing to rapid prominence in its test market. Brendan is now focused on scaling this vital social experiment and bringing positive change to two long-underserved cohorts. Maybe one day he'll even find time to earn that last credit...
