An Entrepreneur's Journey from College to CEO | Jean-François Lévesque (Obkio) | Devo Talks #002
In this episode of Devo Talks, I interview the CEO and Founder of Obkio, Jean-François Lévesque.  He's a hard-working entrepreneur who got his feet wet in the world of business right after graduating college.  A keen individual with a passion for all things networking led him to partner with a friend to start a Montreal networking company called Fibre Noire.  He then sold the company and started his own business called Obkio, which exists to "Empower IT pros with simple network and application performance intelligence tools to proactively optimize end-user experience."  He has a wealth of practical knowledge concerning business, networking, and entrepreneurship, plus he is just a really nice guy.  So grab a coffee, or tea if you prefer, and enjoy the little chat I had with him in our studio.Connect with Jean-François:LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jflevesque/Website: obkio.comDevo Talks is devoted to sharing the latest advances, ideas, and trends in the world of business, technology, and cybersecurity.  It also provides a platform for tech professionals, entrepreneurs, and IT influencers to share some of their stories, experiences, and insights with the rest of the world.Devo Talks is made ad-free as a result of the generous and kind support from its sponsor, Devolutions Inc.PODCAST RESOURCES- YouTube Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfidkb9pPIfIQRjFYIU9EiGIsLGcGDo0E- Apple Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/devo-talks/id1482122818- Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/34t7kS3sinxYesqqXDdLek- Google Podcast: https://podcasts.google.com/?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5idXp6c3Byb3V0LmNvbS82MzYyMjYucnNz- Stitcher: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/devo-talks- iHeart Radio: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/269-devo-talks-51006225/- TuneIn + Alexa: https://tunein.com/podcasts/Technology-Podcasts/Devo-Talks-p1254447/- RSS Feed: https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/636226.rssSOCIAL MEDIA OUTLETS- Sponsor Website: https://devolutions.net/- Podcast Blog: https://blog.devolutions.net/podcast- YouTube Channel: http://youtube.com/user/Devolutions- Facebook (Devolutions): http://facebook.com/devolutionsinc- Twitter (Devolutions): http://twitter.com/DevolutionsInc- Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/devolutionsinc/
