Greetings Small House Society Members:
My name is Cory Stephens. I’m an Instructor of Entrepreneurship at the University of Victoria currently teaching a program in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada.
We have a student in our program who is developing a contractor business specializing in Tiny House Construction for Aboriginal Communities in Northern British Columbia and Yukon.
As part of our entrepreneurship program, we include a mentorship component during which students work with mentors to validate business assumptions working towards development of a stronger business plan. Previously, our student a red-seal journeyman carpenter, has been the team manager for a small-house project completed in Altin, British Columbia (4 small houses built).
The small-house initiative was the inspiration for his new business and hopes to expand the small-house movement throughout Northern British Columbia and Yukon.
At this stage of his entrepreneurship program, our student is seeking a mentor which will provide guidance in developing his business plan and building his business.
Any referrals to a potential mentor for our student would be greatly appreciated.
Program Manager, Northwest Aboriginal Canadian Entrepreneurs
