Our team

Bre Walkeden
Community and Partner Manager

“I started my journey with Cultivator in July 2021, and couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the team. Having previously worked for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, I know a thing or two about Saskatchewan pride and am blown away by the support for Saskatchewan tech startups here at Cultivator. At Cultivator, I work with partners to grow the SK tech ecosystem and create strategic relationships to grow community engagement. Outside of work, you can catch me walking my dog, Joey, around Wascana Park or tackling DIY projects at my house.”

Community Coordinator

“I took the exciting leap to join Cultivator in December 2021. With a passion for creativity and a keen eye for style and design, I bring my background in the retail and fashion sector to enhance my expertise in customer service, social media, and web design. When I’m not at our headquarters, you might spot me strolling with my dog Navy, traveling with family, or enjoying quality time with friends. It’s truly a stroke of luck to be part of the Cultivator team, where each day I get to work alongside incredible colleagues and collaborate with visionary founders as they navigate the journey of growing and scaling their startups.”

Calder Dollard
Program Coordinator

“Upon graduating from the University of Regina Business Program in 2020, I worked in logistics, overseeing and coordinating the transportation of commodities across the prairies and into the U.S., where I further developed my business and agricultural knowledge. As someone who has lived in Regina my entire life, and as someone who considers themselves a techno-optimist, I am thrilled to be able to contribute to the developing startup ecosystem in my backyard. I love fostering relationships and helping contribute to the growth of dynamic ventures. In my spare time, you can find me at the lake, relaxing with friends or playing golf.”

Kyle Lugt
Program Coordinator

“After completing my business degree at the University of Regina in 2021, I joined Cultivator. Within Cultivator, I’ve been involved in various tasks, including space management, marketing, and organizing special events and projects. When I’m not at the Cultivator HQ, you might find me relaxing by the lake or playfully attempting to convince people that I’m an athlete. The tech scene in Saskatchewan is expanding, and I’m excited to be a part of its growth!”

Matt Brennan
Program Coordinator

“I’ve jumped into the tech space from a background in business consulting. I have worked with organizations across Saskatchewan to develop and set strategic direction, facilitate leadership development and team training workshops. I am passionate about seeing businesses thrive in Saskatchewan. I am excited to journey alongside startups in the ecosystem and see companies START, GROW, and SCALE. When I’m not at work you can find me traveling, camping, or playing board games with friends.”

Rebecca Franklin
Program Coordinator

“My excitement stems from a profound passion for technology and innovation. It all started on my family farm in Radville, SK, where I witnessed firsthand the transformative impact of agricultural innovation on efficiency and productivity. After spending five years in the SK Ag sector, I ventured into the tech sector in Halifax, NS, where I immersed myself in the world of startups, venture capital, and the critical factors investors seek in companies. Now, at Cultivator, I’m eagerly embracing the opportunity to lend my support to Scale and Agtech founders as they build companies that contribute to a brighter and more promising future!”
