Tasttlig Corporation was incorporated in July 13, 2018 and started operating in Toronto, Ontario on September 17, 2018. The story of Tasttlig Corporation started at the turn of the century on January 6th, 2000, the day its founder, Nabil Mensah landed in Toronto, Ontario from his homeland of Ghana.
Nabil had been taught from an early childhood about countries outside of Ghana but had never left his birth country until he landed in Toronto on the cold winter January night in 2000. His first experience was with the weather. It was his next experience that sowed the seeds for Tasttlig Corporation, The dim representation of some Nations and their people. He know the world had to be showcased in the best light possible and someone had to tell this story better.
As a student, his focus was on his education but he would from time to time share his thoughts on the truth about his homeland and its people with his friends and other people if they were curious to know. After completing his studies at McMaster University with a major in Economics, Computer Science and a minor in commerce, he worked for some of the largest financial institutions in Canada as a financial advisor across the country.
