Mitchell was born in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, in Canada’s arctic. He is Co-Founder and COO of Saucal Studios. His creativity for websites began while in elementary school on the once popular GeoCities platform. At the age of 14, one of his sites was featured during a live broadcast on a Canadian national television show. Prior to Saucal Studios, Mitchell worked in the financial industry, specializing in equities and options trading. He holds a BA in Political Science from the University of Calgary and has completed the Canadian Securities Course (equivalent to the US Series 7).
Dominik Sauter is the son of Swiss immigrant parents and was born in Ottawa. He is Co-Founder and CEO of Saucal Studios, an internet firm specializing in web development, online marketing and design. He grew up in a hotel owned by his parents, which sharpened his business instincts and instilled in him a personal work ethic, charm and a keen eye for style. In 2009, Dominik successfully launched his own venture, the Barefoot Hostel and then a year later, he raised three quarters of a million in venture capital to renovate his parents’ bed and breakfast, now called the Swiss Hotel. Dominik’s interests lie in new technology, game development, music production, marksmanship and wakeboarding at his cottage in Quebec. During his spare time, he creates stems for beats, many of which have been sold to Sony BMG Music.
