2 Brothers & 1 idea


Montreal born brothers Sean Ouaknine and Jarrod Ouaknine saw an opportunity in brick and mortar retail in 2017, to open up a small shop where customers can find all the trending online gadgets they see on sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Kickstarter and come in to touch, test out and purchase their favourite items all in a fun and immersive retail experience. In 2018, they took the experience online with modernidea.ca, a refined and exciting site for the most unique tech gadgets and accessories right at your fingertips.
