CEO, Folly Enterprises; Co-Founder, Blacksquare, Inc.
David Gluzman is the CEO of Folly Enterprises and co-founder of BlackSquare, Inc. Gluzman has been a wine enthusiast since his earlier career as a competitive cyclist brought him to the wine regions of Italy. In an effort to encourage education and discourage snobbery, he founded WineCollective.ca: a wine club that started as a local project in Calgary. In a matter of years it would become the largest wine club in Canada.
The creator of several tech startups, Gluzman specializes in data-based user experience and design, and has worked with brands as prominent as Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Dell, Ikea, and Rolex. These experiences have led to his reputation as a passionate advocate for startups and technology in Canada. In 2014, he was recognized as one of Avenue Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40.
In 2019, Gluzman’s Global Wine Database merged with the educational site WineFolly.com to create Folly Enterprises. Its objective: to create a standard for wine data through engaging, informative, and accurate wine information for the world.
