Ryan O’Neil Knight 

Ryan has built multiple businesses over the last 10 years and spends a great deal of his time leading and mentoring young entrepreneurs. After starting Detailing Knights, a mobile waterless car cleaning company, Ryan was able to launch his first youth entrepreneurship program called Knighthood Academy.

Knighthood Academy was designed to help underestimated youth in the community develop their leadership skills through an entrepreneurship bootcamp. Various youth with multiple barriers have accessed the program ranging from high school drop outs, past gang members, and those recently released from detention.

Ryan has been named one of Brampton’s top 40 under 40 and twice nominated for a Business Excellence Award in both Toronto and Brampton. Ryan was also named to the Sheridan Pilon School of Business Hall of Fame.

Ryan has a deep passion for his community and is one of the cofounders of the Afro Caribbean Business Network. A non profit organization created to help entrepreneurs of African and Caribbean heritage (ACh) to not only start businesses but help their companies grow and become assets for future generations.
