CSE’s James Black recently sat down with Chris Bursey, CEO of Direct Communication Solutions, Inc. (CSE:DCSI), to reflect on the company’s innovations in the IoT space and recent public listing on the CSE.
In this discussion, Chris shares the motivating factors behind choosing public capital over venture capital (1:36), DCSI’s plans to revolutionize the bar and restaurant industry through better beer monitoring (2:57), and how he transitioned into entrepreneurship after serving on aircraft carriers as an air traffic controller (7:34).
Listen until the end to hear about Chris’s “Grizzly Bear Theory” and the burden (and honour) of being the head of an organization.
The CSE was happy to welcome Direct Communication Solutions Inc. (CSE:DCSI) to open the market at the CSE Media Centre on January 14th, 2020.
