Fonative, Inc. is formerly known as Ampersand, Inc.
Ampersand strengthened its Board of Advisors team with the addition of Nicholas Paine, Founder and CEO of Quinto Capital, a venture capital investor in high-growth tech and SaaS companies and real estate platforms.
Nicholas began corporate life in Proctor and Gamble brand management and moved on to found, operate and chair several IT and internet companies located across the globe including Lavalife, a telephone dating service that evolved into an online and mobile dating site. Nick grew Lavalife from inception to $90 million in revenue before selling it to a public company in 2004.
