Join the movement of next generation city builders! WeBuild is an entrepreneurial incubator that creates social purpose real estate projects! I am Andrew Garrett, Founder of WeBuild, a commercial real estate development executive with experience building mixed use developments across Canada.
Three years ago, WeBuild started as a single training course, and has now evolved into a two pronged social enterprise model. Firstly, WeBuild provides Non-profits with consulting and project management services to renovate, relocate, or redevelop their office & program outreach space. Secondly, to supplement WeBuild’s team of consulting real estate experts, we offer online training and volunteer work experience opportunities to students & early career professionals aspiring to be the next generation of purpose driven real estate developers. WeBuild focus's on developing real estate projects like innovative community hubs that better serve communities and help these future City builders gain core developer skills outside their primary area of experience.
Over a 20 year career, I have gone from dishwasher to director of real estate development at a multibillion dollar firm. Early in my career I lacked industry connections or access to entrepreneurs. So I want to help those who started like me, find ways to break into the commercial real estate industry.
WeBuild was formed as a social enterprise to join a movement of companies that demonstrates social impact, especially in their approach to civic engagement, charitable giving, supplier inclusion, and governance.
