The Rain Technologies founding team

Rain Technologies Inc. is a team of finance professionals and seasoned software engineers committed to creating easy-to-use next generation solutions with the goal of promoting financial clarity and business strategy.

The team, as it stands today, came together between 2019 and 2022.

Its founding member – Alexandre Labrèche – was a student at uOttawa and minor league hockey player in Quebec. He first became interested in the idea of finance and business planning in 2018, and assembled a team of students to prototype a budgeting software designed for Canadian public sector use. 

As the team expanded in subsequent years, this prototype was redesigned and shipped to several public sector departments including the Impact Agency of Canada (IAAC) and Innovation, Science, and Economic Development (ISED). It was during this time that Alex was speaking to fintech industry leaders and found that the concept behind Budget Manager could have a greater impact on the private sector. 

Rain’s co-founder and CFO – Vanessa Galarneau – was instrumental during this pivot. Her previous experience in finance at Canada’s biggest law firm helped the development team create a dream solution for CFOs and Controllers alike. Throughout the years, Vanessa has leveraged her knowledge of industry standards and common practices to apply a truly human approach to Rain’s sales outreach. 

Every conversation she has with prospective clients is built on the basis that Vanessa truly understands their frustrations, and that she wants to create an industry-agnostic product that will have real value for real people. 

This, of course, is achieved by Rain’s highly accredited product owner and CTO, Andrew Ingram, who boasts years of experience at one of Ottawa’s top semiconductor firms. It is through his insight into application architecture and the development cycle that it has been possible to create Rain’s out-of-the-box successes. 

Andrew led his team of developers through the creation of both Budget Manager, and Rain’s newest application, Pluvo. Under his guidance the engineering team became Salesforce certified and then went on to learn an entirely new tech stack in just under 3 months to create Pluvo.

The Rain Technologies team as a whole is brought and held together by its co-founder and COO, Sebastian Fallenbuchl, who offers a unique understanding of both business and product development. Sebastian is a university trained biomedical mechanical engineer but found his true calling as Rain’s Chief Operations Officer.

It is with his unique skill set and organizational competencies that he can ensure the sales, marketing, and product team are able to promise and execute upon the company’s vision for their enterprise-level financial planning tools.

When a business chooses to adopt Pluvo into their current systems they enjoy out-of-the-box automation tools that will cut down on time spent performing high effort/low yield tasks. It syncs with current ERP systems such as Quickbooks Online or Xero, so that all your data integrity stays intact. The development team is hard at work making other integrations possible based on feedback from presale customers and early adopters.
