Mark Ward is a serial Entrepreneur with over 20 years of Business experience. Starting his first business at age 18, he co-founded the 1st all hip hop dance studio in Western Canada, 3rd Street Beat. 5 years later he discovered a need in the market for an All Hip Hop Dance Competition and created Artists Emerge which is a National Dance Competition & Convention.
Along the way his mission was to spread the message of Youth Giving back to Youth while showcasing the positive impact that Hip Hop can have on the Youth of Today. To really make an impact of this point he co-produced a Benefit Concert that ran for 10 years called Hip Hope for Hope which raised closed to half a million dollars for various Canadian Charities.
In 2015 he co-founded the 1st Destination Dance Experience, Dancers Paradise, where dancers from all over the world would gather to party, compete and train on a 5 star resort in Cancun.
With all the dance businesses going strong, he realized that it was time to branch out and start advising and build companies that could support each other and that was when “Express It Marketing” was born to provide fuel to the fire. His passion to serve as many people as possible has now led him on a path to investing in wonderful companies and helping them grow to new heights.
