Zak Hemraj is the Co-founder and CEO of Loopio, a Toronto-based software company that
helps organizations streamline their process for answering RFPs, DDQs, and Security
Questionnaires. Before Loopio, he spent 8 years at Achievers where he learned the
fundamentals of software development and sales, and helped scale the company to serve
millions of users across the world.
Zak took the entrepreneurial plunge in 2014. He co-founded Loopio with his closest friends, Matt
York and Jafar Owainati, and they had one thing in mind — build a great, enduring company.
Since then, Loopio has grown to over 200 people, serving more than 1,000 customers globally.
They were ranked 28th on the 2021 Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ Awards and selected as one
of LinkedIn’s Top Startups in Canada two years in a row. Loopio raised $9M in Series A funding
from OpenView Venture Partners in 2018 and a $200M strategic investment from Sumeru
Equity Partners in 2021 to further accelerate growth.
Since Loopio’s inception, Zak’s focus areas have spanned product, customer success, sales,
finance, and all things culture. He is a people-focused leader that loves building things,
regardless of the domain.
