Sagar Saxena

Born and raised in India, Sagar’s passion for international business led him to pursue graduate studies from Cardiff University in the U.K.

After completing his MBA in 2009, Sagar returned to India and began Caravan O Herbs, an agriculture-based company with the vision of combatting unethical business practices and unreliable supply chains through corporate social responsibility. Eventually Caravan O Herbs carved a niche for itself within India, Europe and the United States.

In 2014, Sagar shifted with his family to Canada and shortly thereafter joined the University of Northern British Columbia’s Research Office, focusing on partnerships and new initiatives.

In late 2016, Sagar began a career with School District 91 as the first Community Engagement & Partnerships Officer. While promoting and nurturing new strategic alliances for SD91 – Nechako Lakes, Sagar is committed to exploring and nurturing models of sustainable economic growth within the remote communities of northern British Columbia.

During his years in Northern B.C., Sagar has initiated several programs which continue to generate large funding, drive economic development and create accessible opportunities for rural communities and its youth.

Within the last 4 years, two of his self-initiated projects were showcased by the B.C. Government. Sagar is also an Entrepreneur in Residence for Hub Space in Prince George, an early stage Angel Investor and the Lead Consultant for YELL Canada in Northern BC.

In 2018, Sagar was selected as a Top 40 under 40 by the Prince George Chamber of Commerce.
