The WTC Winnipeg podcast welcomes Joelle Foster, CEO of North Forge Technology Exchange, to join Mariette Mulaire in chatting with innovative Manitoba businesses.
In this episode, Nate Kasten, Founder of Grey & Ivy Inc., spoke about how an activity that he started with his children led to a larger project which he believes could bring economic and career development opportunities to youth throughout Manitoba. Nate is an architect and strongly believes in his responsibility to create equitable access to jobs and opportunities, particularly in indigenous communities.
Grey & Ivy simplifies architecture design tools and brings them together with indigenous land teachings to create a platform for career awareness and education. Nate named the company after his childrens’ middle names as their creativity in building a playhouse during the COVID-19 pandemic is what essentially led to the inspiration for the company.
