How: Falconbridge went to college for entrepreneurship and helped launch Modern Group after graduating in the early 2000s.

Currently the Modern Group has 50 employees and Falconbridge plans to expand by 20% next year.

In his own words: "Our in-house services are a big deal as far as having employees on site instead of sub-contractors. Being reliable, accountable and predictable—that is our tagline."
