ABOUT US

A collective of like-minded digital technology experts—bonded by experience.

Brigade was founded in 2016 by Canadian army veteran Matt Austin. Matt was inspired after seeing a lack of Canadian companies actively recruiting veterans and soldiers in the field of innovation.

Despite their proven dedication to safety, projects and teamwork, there was no one place for soldiers to call home. That all changed with Brigade.
