Berwick founded StockHouse Media Corporation in 1994, raising over $40 million USD in financing and growing the company to a peak of more than 200 employees in 8 countries worldwide by 2000. StockHouse continues to be the most active financial website in Canada, ranking No. 1 in February 2007, by comScore Media Metrix Ad Focus report – beating out Globe Finance, Yahoo! Canada Finance and Sympatico/MSN Finance – in the areas of pages per visitor and average minutes per visitor in the business/finance news and research category.[1]

Berwick was awarded the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award in 1999. In 1999 and 2000, Berwick was recognized by Business in Vancouver's "Top 40 under 40" ranking.[2]

Berwick has been a regular contributor to editorials on the StockHouse websites from 1995 to present and contributes to numerous popular libertarian and finance sites including LewRockwell.com and writes a libertarian, Austrian economics-focused financial newsletter called The Dollar Vigilante.[3] He is the host of Anarchast,[4] an anarcho-capitalist video and audio podcast show. He is also a regular speaker at international investing, finance and liberty conferences including Libertopia,[5] FreedomFest,[6] New York Hard Assets Show,[7] PDAC[8] and the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference.[9] He also is the founder of global citizenship and passport services company, TDV Passports and founder of a libertarian expat community near Santiago, Chile called Galt's Gulch Chile.

In 2013 he announced his plans to co-found the world's first Bitcoin ATM machine.[10] He is also a regular in the mainstream media as an expert and leading entrepreneur on Bitcoin including appearances on CNBC [11] and Fox Business.[12] He subsequently officially withdrew from the Bitcoin ATM project under some dispute with his partners but stated he will be entering into future bitcoin ventures.[13]

He is the owner of AcaCondos an Acapulco based real estate company as well as the owner of Las Torres Gemelas Private Suites, a boutique hotel in Acapulco.[14]

In June, 2005, Berwick was in the process of circumnavigating the world in his 35' sailing catamaran when he was caught in a storm and the ship was sunk, leaving Berwick on his surfboard, later to be rescued with minor injuries by other sailors near Jiquilisco Bay, El Salvador.[15]
