Okanagan Edge and Kelowna Chamber of Commerce are partnering to showcase some of the region’s most exciting entrepreneurs through the “Top 40 Under 40” program.

Sponsored by BDO, the “Top 40 Under 40” recognizes high-achieving professionals in our community and showcases their accomplishments. This marks the eighth year the chamber has conducted a “Top 40” showcase. Honourees will be featured throughout the year on Okanagan Edge.


Gursagar Singh is a fifth-year student in the bachelor of management program at UBC Okanagan who describes himself as a young and ambitious entrepreneur.

Currently finishing university, Singh runs businesses in the real estate, e-commerce and business process outsourcing industries. Starting his undergrad he was eager to connect with his peers. He founded the Indian Culture and Dance Club to pursue his fascination with Indian culture and connect the Indian communities within UBCO. He competed in case competitions and clubs related to consulting and entrepreneurship. Wanting to share his experiences, he was positioned as the director for Consulting Club. 

In his third year of university, he founded a real estate holdings company and started a gym apparel company. Determined to give back to UBC Okanagan and help students, Singh decided to run for senate, governing educational policies advocating for mental health awareness and the restrictions for invigilation. Singh assisted the student union’s vice-president of finance and budgeted their expenses. In the summer of 2021, he launched the business process outsourcing and made a strategic alliance with a realty company.

Singh’s leadership has included the HK Phil Vision Strategic Alliance with DDR Real Estate Brokerage Services; founding Konseqy Apparel Inc. in 2020; founding HK PhilVision in 2021; co-founding JSD Cresco; constructing a website and transaction-based software to connect point-of-sale systems for small and medium-sized businesses in the food and wine industry; boosting employee morale and resolving clientele interpersonal conflicts in Ohana Manpower Services Inc.; working as a student-at-large within Students’ Union of UBCO’s funding committee; being elected by majority vote as the faculty of management student representative in UBCO’s senate; named director of Consulting Club UBCO within Management Student Association; and taking second place at the UBCO Management Student Association’s consulting case competition.

Plenty of fundraising also defines who Singh is. He took part in charity events at UBCO, United Way, BrainTrust BC and many others. He also volunteered and advocated for mental health awareness and curriculum policies as a student senator during his 2020-2021 term.

Singh will graduate in 2022 with a bachelor of arts degree in management from UBCO.
