who are these mysterious people?
CARLY GOUWELOOS ~ Creative Director & Designer
Ever wonder what happens to those crazy homeschooled kids when they grow up? Well, here you go! Carly has always been inspired by design and has an entrepreneurial spirit. She took on her first entrepreneurial project at 21 when she was hired to help start up a loose-leaf tea business. Carly’s first entry into design was the creation of a natural health and wellness magazine. After a few years, she went back to school to get her MBA in Innovation & Entrepreneurship where she focused on design-thinking, creative problem solving (CPS), and intraprenuership (employees as entrepreneurs). Today Carly manages Canada’s first art finance company, which she helped to create with a few investors, loves staying creative though design projects with Caleidoscope and makes some magical potions that she sells through her online shop, thghtsnctry.
