Keyspire was founded by Scott McGillivray and Michael Sarracini, friends of over 15 years.
It was September 2000; two guys in University were living on their own for the first time. Like most University students they found a house to rent with some friends and the five of them moved in. They learned very quickly about the new expenses that they’ve never had before, and since their student loans were going directly to rent, they had to get better paying jobs to pay for tuition and living expenses. So they got jobs as waiters at a nearby restaurant and everything was stable; they were covering the bills but adding nothing to savings.
After talking during many late nights at the restaurant the guys realized that they had a common goal: to be very wealthy and make an impact on millions of people around the world. They agreed they would stop at nothing to reach their goal. They realized that by working together, they would be much more likely to succeed, and committed to working together to make it happen.
