ROBERT HERJAVEC BIOGRAPHY
One of North America’s most respected business people, Robert Herjavec, is most recognized for his role as a dragon on Canada’s Dragon’s Den and a shark on the U.S. Shark Tank. Off-screen, he is the founder and CEO of the Herjavec Group, one of Canada’s largest and most profitable information technology companies.
At age 8, Robert and his family arrived in Canada from communist Yugoslavia with a single suitcase and $20. His father worked sweeping factory floors, and Robert was often bullied in school for his accent and unstylish clothing. The circumstances motivated him to be more than “good enough;” he wanted to be the best at something so that he could provide his family with a better life.
While working multiple jobs, he started his first company, an integrator of Internet security software, BRAK systems, in his basement. Ten years later, he sold it to AT & T Canada, making him a millionaire. After taking a three-year break to be a stay-at-home dad, he returned to the business world with the creation of Herjavec Group, one of the globe’s leading cyber security companies.
Robert Herjavec is a dynamic entrepreneur and a leading Shark on ABC’s Shark Tank. Born in Eastern Europe, he arrived in North America on a boat with his parents after escaping Communism in the former Yugoslavia. From delivering newspapers, and waiting tables to launching a computer company from his basement, his drive to achieve has led him to the fulfilment of a better life for himself and his family. Robert has built and sold several IT companies to major players, such as AT&T. In 2003, Robert founded Herjavec Group, and it quickly became one of North America’s fastest-growing technology companies. Today, Herjavec Group is recognized as a global leader in information security, specializing in managed security services, compliance, incident response and remediation efforts for enterprise-level organizations.
