Jeremy Pastel has developed a keen understanding of business telephone systems, which he gained from working with the largest telecommunications providers in Europe, North America, and in the Caribbean.
In 2010, Jeremy started his own company, VoxSun Telecom in North America… But when he was only 15 years old, his entrepreneurial instincts were already noticeable. In fact, he started out offering a residential lawn maintenance service in the region of Paris, France, where he was born.
Later, he went to the island of Martinique with his family. Once more, he showed his entrepreneurial spirit by selling ice cream on the beaches. This was noticed by a recruiter for a completely different type of company, which offered Jeremy a new opportunity to exercise his talents. Jeremy accepted the offer and started as a salesman for this Caribbean telecommunication company. He became a team leader in that organization after only two months.
Two years later, Jeremy returned to Paris to get married. At that time, he worked for the largest communications company in that region as a promotion manager of Internet services for local retail stores. While he was doing this, Jeremy studied business administration and information technology management.
After completing his studies, Jeremy decided to move to Canada – yet another place where he could put his entrepreneurial designs to work. Jeremy arrived in Quebec at the end of 2008. He soon found himself with only $20 in his pocket – but that did not stop him. He still maintained the very clear objective of creating his own company.
The initial obstacles he faced while trying to start up his company did not dim his determination. He created VoxSun, a business telecommunications company. Once it was launched, his efforts were rewarded with rapid growth right from the beginning. Jeremy is now the owner of several companies and is also a business partner with several well-known public figures.
Along the way, Jeremy achieved other successes as well. In 2012, he was awarded the “Créavenir” prize from the financial institution Caisse Dejardins. Three years later, he became a member of its administrative board.
In 2013, he was awarded the Young Entrepreneur grant from the Economic Development Centre of Ville St-Laurent in Montréal.
In 2014, he won the Service prize in the category of young entrepreneur of the 30th Gala alpha, which is an event designed to recognize the vision, creativity, and dynamism of businesses in the territory served by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Saint-Laurent-Mont-Royal.
In that same year, Jeremy made a notable appearance in the finals of the French Canadian version of “Shark Tank”, in which he had to showcase his company to five well-known, awe-provoking, big-league investors. By demonstrating his professionalism, assurance, and thorough understanding of the industry, Jeremy Pastel convinced them of his business acumen – so much that they chose to partner with him.
Jeremy wrote the business guide “How to Hit It Big in Business”, in which he shares the practical method he used to launch his companies, once again, having started with only $20 in his pocket. At the end of 2016, his book was translated into English for international distribution.
