Nadia Hamilton

Nadia Hamilton is on a mission to create a world where people with autism and other cognitive special needs live with independence and inclusion.  She was inspired by her brother Troy, a young man with autism, to build an-award winning company that leverages technology to achieve this vision. The company is called Magnusmode, and its products are now empowering people with special needs in over 72 countries worldwide. Corporate customers including Colgate-Palmolive, CIBC, Tim Hortons, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, and Toronto Pearson International Airport utilize the Magnusmode platform to provide branded how-to guides that people follow to explore and navigate daily activities with independence (e.g. brushing teeth, going grocery shopping, going to see a game at the Air Canada Centre). A passion that was ignited by sibling love is growing into an accessibility movement that transforms the way people live in the world, and the way companies interact with them. Troy is also involved as Lead Product Tester! When she’s not changing the world, you can find her painting, exercising, re-watching movies about the lives of her favorite heroes (the company mascot’s name, Magnus, means ‘great’ in Latin and was inspired by her love of Alexander the Great), playing video games with Troy or spending time with family.
