Linus Sebastian Career
He was previously working as a category manager for the no longer operational Canadian computer store, NCIX. He hosted the technology channel for the company while working with limited resources. Later, he was asked to create the channel Linus Tech Tips due to low viewership and high costs. The channel he created was initially supposed to be a cheaper offshoot for the NCIX channel. Linus Tech Tips was created on the 24th of November, 2008. A few years later, he founded Linus Media Group out of a garage as an independent venture. Around that time, he also started working on Techquickie. In the early years, he had no capital to support the business as well as provide for his family.

In May 2018, he was trying to purchase the NCIX Tech Tips YouTube Channel but he was unable to do so but instead, he brought along the former NCIX Tech Tips host, Riley Murdock, to host his other YouTube Channel Techlinked.
