Neel Singh is a Vancouver-based entrepreneur, business leader and creative with over 20 years of experience in the intersection of brand strategy, change management and design thinking. Neel consults organizations helping them become a driving innovator in their industries and he regularly mentors entrepreneurs and professionals on their growth.

Neel Singh is a serial entrepreneur who has run several businesses and has been involved with many startups. He recently co-founded Tropoly, a brand transformation and strategy firm focused on advancing humanity through innovation and business transformation. Tropoly’s comprehensive approach integrates data science research, competitive analysis, AI integration, customer experience, and more, reflecting a commitment to unique, forward-thinking solutions.

For nearly a decade, Neel Singh served on the leadership team at BBTV (BBTV: TSX) – a global leader in the digital video space – and helped the company build and scale through start-up and hyper-growth to its eventual public listing on the TSX in 2020. During this tenure, he developed and led several functions across marketing, customer experience, shared services, and creativity. He helped position the company for strategic development, oversaw multinational programs, led change management and restructuring initiatives and mentored several staff into key senior positions. Neel also led over 80 brand and positioning projects, registered 15+ trademarks, and collaborated with the likes of the NBA, HuffPost and G20 on the development & launch of specialized brands.

Neel Singh also served as fractional Chief Operating Officer in a high-growth electric vehicle charging company, partnering with the CEO on growth initiatives and overseeing the company’s operations. In this role, Neel developed the strategic goals and KPIs of the company, provided leadership to the business units and led marketing and brand strategy efforts to set up the organization for scale and fundraising.

Today Neel provides strategic consulting and advisory to high-growth and innovative organizations. Through his firm Tropoly, he and his partners collaborate with a collective of experts on large-scale branding, marketing, and business transformation initiatives. Neel Singh has overseen projects ranging from positioning highly innovative start-ups for funding to re-branding multi-billion dollar public companies. Neel’s unique approach is guided by Metropolis Thinking, his organizing principle that embodies how humanity and connectivity, growth, and innovation collide to create something bigger than itself. Neel also serves as an advisor to YELL Canada – a charitable organization bringing entrepreneurial learning to the education system.

Neel is a purveyor of the multipotentiality trait and has given talks on becoming a ‘master of many’ (as opposed to a ‘master of none’). He believes the overbearing narrative of “hyper-specialization equals success” is no longer relevant in a world that has transformed significantly since the industrial revolution – a time when ‘division of labour’ was deeply integrated into how people worked, learned and thought. Given today’s rapidly shifting world, Neel Singh attributes the pitfalls of specialization as one of the key reasons why many people will struggle to adapt to a rapidly changing job market – and a broken education system as the other closely-related factor.

Born to accomplished writers, Neel Singh started doodling at the age of 5 and quickly became obsessed with drawing and creating stories. In his teens and early adulthood, he would dive deep into design, music, writing, illustration, photography, video and animation. Neel attributes his multidisciplinary approach (and excessive time spent on a whiteboard) to his life-long creative exploration.
