A Story from the Founder's Side
I (Nathan - or Nate Seiling) know what it is like to dig the foundation, put the roof on and everything in between. At the age of 10, I programmed my first computer and at 13, I built my first house with my dad. In high school, I took both the computer path as well as the construction path and after high school I did a lot of construction work, then sales for electronic stores, then sales for automotive, and then back into the construction trade.
When I had my own construction company, I knew the pain of doing quotes late into the evening and on the weekends. It was always a challenge to let the workers know what was included and what was not included. Later, I was brought on to the largest construction company in our area as a project manager. I loved the chaos, but hated the repeated need to do quotes from scratch. I knew there had to be a better way, and hence Quote Kong was born.
It took me 4 years of watching every step of the process - what was important and what was not - then a full year of full time work building this solution. During that time, I went through entrepreneurship courses in Guelph, Communitech (in Waterloo) and many, many online courses. I have always loved tech, but for the main purpose of being efficient. I also love helping others in whatever way I can and I hope we can help you.
