Zak Hemraj is the Co-founder and CEO of Loopio, a Toronto-based software company that is the market leader in Response Management. Loopio’s platform helps sales teams tackle complex requests like RFPs, DDQs, and Security Questionnaires.

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 big, enduring company. Since then, Loopio has grown to over 250 people, serving more than 1,400 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 development, go-to-market, finance, and all things culture. He is a people-focused leader that loves building things, regardless of the domain. In 2021, he was recognized as one of Canada’s Most Admired CEOs by Waterstone Human Capital.
