Logan Carr is a local UNBSJ graduate with a major in Software Engineering. Logan did not plan on taking the route of becoming an entrepreneur, but a good friend
Will convinced him otherwise. Logan and Will took a master's degree in entrepreneurship, which directed both to start a software application called Jarvis, this is a proprietary software that helps you as a user experience a technology platform “personal assistant” for virtual meetings. Jarvis will generate meeting records, eliminate the need for taking notes, and record action items.
Logan arrived at ConnexionWorks through his friend Palmer (another Member spotlight
for you to enjoy) He knew that the Paid Start-Up Program (PSP) offered a standard minimum
wage, which at the time really helped Logan focus on the business fully. Once intergraded in the program, he discovered the resources that he had at his fingertips; co-working, mentorship, and knowledge provided by knowledgeable guest speakers. Logan meets with his PSP group twice a week and says that "The program offers a communal mentorship where you learn from everyone's experiences. Which is way more important than the minimum wage."
Logan has experienced a "butterfly effect" from the PSP, meaning no significant changes have been made to Jarvis but gaining experience from the PSP program has influenced him and the direction of his team. Logan also says that the most rewarding element is the community fostered within the program.
Logan and his team are pushing to release Jarvis's first version and plan on developing client relationships. The first pilot project launch will be a selective group of clients. Logan hopes to have a full launch later after collecting client feedback and optimizing the software, Jarvis. Logan hopes to go global within a year, and as of today Logan is still part of his PSP community within the ConnexionWorks eco system.
