Co-Founder, commonsku & Rightsleeve
Mark Graham is the co-founder of commonsku, a workflow management platform designed for the $24 BN promotional products industry. Mark’s desire to get into the software business was born out of the frustration he experienced in building his other company, Rightsleeve, a promotional products agency.

Mark has been an entrepreneur from his days at Queen’s University, with a brief stop in the corporate world when he worked as an investment banking analyst. From that experience, he knew that working for someone else was far less fun than working for yourself.
Mark is passionate about mentorship and helping other entrepreneurs in their journey. In 2011, he helped start a non profit community called PromoKitchen which serves as a mentorship platform for promotional products professionals. He has also been as a mentor at U of T’s The Hatchery since 2015 where he has helped engineering students launch new businesses.
When not at work, Mark spends as much time as possible with his 3 kids and wife, Catherine, who is also his business partner in both companies. Mark loves photography, travel, reading and long distance running.
