Mike Thiessen is the Chief Executive Officer at Business Instruments (BI), and a co-founder of Kakkuro Suite™. He is also a member of Pipeline Entrepreneur Fellowship and a co-founder or Beloit Solutions Group, a Google Partner and Google Apps Partner Advisory Board member prior to being acquired by Cloud Sherpas. As a 20-year veteran of the technology world, Mike saw first-hand the obstacles faced by business owners and was determined to find a solution. Knowing the pain points he had faced during his tenure at previous organizations, he knew what other business owners would want in their software solutions: intuitive and customizable features with a simple, user-friendly interface. Upon finding the market lacked a software suite with such a philosophy, the founders of BI decided to build an integrated software system that did not function as an organizational silo, but crafted to suit the needs of a business owner. From this dream, Thrive was born.

When he’s not being a groundbreaking entrepreneur, Mike enjoys the outdoors, hiking, reading, college sports, and spending time with his grandsons.
