Marc Soberano founded Building Up because he felt it needed to exist. He believes that the role of a social enterprise is to connect people that want to make socially-minded purchasing decisions with the opportunity to do so. Marc graduated the Richard Ivey School of Business, canoed across Canada, and understands the untapped transformative powers of the toilet. He combines lessons learned from life in the woods with a people-first outlook to lead this organization towards its vision.
