Growing up in Regina, we are very fortunate for the community we have around us. We believe that if you’ve been given a gift, the only way to keep it is to pass it on.
Jeph teaches Admin 224 (Entrepreneurship) at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. The class project was to start a company that actually created a product and sold it for a profit. The class chose social enterprise (donating the profit back to a Non-profit) and we ended up selling 60 t-shirts in 7 days and donating $1,000 to Carmichael Outreach in Regina. Then in 2016 we were interviewed on CBC for the “Free Hugs” campaign we did!

This years class project was to start a company that sold “MisMatched Mittens”. We again went with social enterprise and we ended up selling 89 pairs of mitts in 3 weeks and donating $885 to the Redcross #ImagineNoBullying Campaign in Regina. We also got a little press in the LeaderPost for MisMatched Mitten.

Big Idea Camp
In 2015 with the help of Jordan McFarlen we started Big Idea Camp a business camp for highschool students. It’s now into it’s Fourth year! Big Idea Camp 3.0 saw 16 students and many community partners making it the best year yet. We even offered a job to one lucky Big Idea Camper. Misha (AKA the Mish Kebab!) is still working with Strategy Lab and is more enthusiastic than ever!
We work with forward-thinking companies and non-profit organizations that challenge the status quo and aren’t afraid trying new things. More importantly, we work with people that have a greater purpose than simply growing their bottom line. People that have a desire to grow and give back to the community in which they live and work in.
