Adam Kourakis is an SWL grad and local entrepreneur.

After high school, Adam went to uOttawa and earned a BSc with Specialization in Human Kinetics.

In 2014, one year after graduating, Adam opened his first business; Velofix Ottawa. Velofix is a mobile bicycle shop and was featured on CBC’s Dragons Den. In 2017, 2018 and 2019, Velofix Ottawa was named “Best Bike Shop in Canada”.

Adam is still the owner and head mechanic with Velofix Ottawa but he’s recently become the owner of 2 other businesses: TriRudy and Somersault.
