About us


Odondoo is the first social network 100% local. The goal of this social media is to encourage multiculturalism and encourage users to lend a hand to the community.

Users post messages to exchange advises, information, skills, and buy, sell or exchange second hand goods. Those messages are shown based on relevancy and location to other users.

Odondoo innovates in the mutual aid domain by using the latest technology, digital medias, and cutting edge proprietary algorithms.

Francois Paquette

After renovating several buildings, François realised that many of his friends were in need of his skills. He then started thinking about an application that would allow users to find help each other out.

After 15 years as a programmer and a lead programmer in the video game industry, François has experience in pretty much all technical and managemerial areas.

He also has strong handyman skills, experience working for startups and has himself started several companies in the past.

He started this adventure to make sure everybody could find help within the local community easily and quickly. He also wanted to create a great place to exchange goods to lower overconsumption and reduce pollution.

Gabriel Ware

The idea of Odondoo came to Gabriel when he had two problems : he had a huge hole in a wall that he needed fixed and he was planning his vacations so he had to find someone to take care of his cat. It would have been great to have an applicaiton to ask for help from the neighbors.

Gabriel has 13 years of professional programming experience. He managed teams of all sizes in the video game industry and helped recruiting programmers at Ubisoft Montréal. He co-authored ‘Game Programming Gems 8’ and gave conferences and training in France and in Québec.

Gabriel had the opportunity to learn business management through the training at SAJE Montréal in 2017 and by founding and administrating Krav Maga Montréal since 2011.

He sees Odondoo as a great way to buildup communities and encourage people to lend a hand to their community.
