FunLight started out of a need to have a summer job when I was 16. I was told to look for something that interested me. I have always liked laser tag, working with people and being outdoors. I decided to put these interests together to start my own business.
I received help from OCRI’s Entrepreneur Centre (now Invest Ottawa) and a grant from the Ontario government’s Summer Company program. Late in 2011 I added mobile mini putt to expand the things that I could offer my customers. So far it has proven quite popular.
I have done close to 1,000 events from BC and the high Arctic to five minutes from my house.
I operate the business while completing my PhD in the Science of Fire Safety Engineering at Carleton University.
I am always eager to hear what people think and if they have any suggestions of how to improve my business. So if you have a comment please send me an email at Hamish@funlight.ca. .
