Meet Jeremiah Curvers.
Raised in a Belgian family with a strong entrepreneurial spirit in furniture and decor, Jeremiah emigrated to Canada at the age of 15. It was only two years later that he founded his first business venture; it was a sign of things to come.
His early passion for graphic design and technology led him into digital marketing for major brands, including – at age 24 – a management position at Yellow Pages Group and consulting work with Videotron, Bell, Wawanesa, Cossette, Touché! and others.
During these formative years, he began to embrace the notion of disruptive innovation, an idea that innovation by an outsider can eventually replace establish, market-leading firms. This approach inspired him (following a painful back injury – but that’s another story!) to found Polysleep in 2016. And it drives the business to this day.
Leveraging state-of-the-art research and development techniques and the latest digital marketing strategies, Polysleep became one of the Globe and Mail’s “Canada’s Top Growing Companies” in 2022, ranking an impressive 39th out of 430 successful businesses.
Jeremiah is also a firm believer of walking the talk when it comes to living personal values. Polysleep, as a company, is well known for its environmentally responsible production and “mattress in a box” delivery methods, as well as its support for numerous charities. For his part, Jeremiah is an active member of the Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Montreal and helps other companies as an executive advisor.
Jeremiah’s goal is to sleep well at night knowing he’s helping others do the same.
