ChristosChristos discovered his passion for entrepreneurship while attending the Asper School of Business. During his time as a student, he owned and operated a College Pro franchise, served as the President of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization of Manitoba, and launched the digital application, Qwotes App. 

Like many aspiring student entrepreneurs, Christos met the crossroad between pursuing a passion and entering the workforce. He wanted to apply his skillset in finance, help others, and truly be an entrepreneur, all while meeting the financial requirements of the real world. This sparked the creation of Vasila Consulting, an advisory firm dedicated to aiding business owners in debt capital raising and technical founder coaching.

Three years later, Christos is the proud owner of Vasila Corp., the parent company of multiple entities, including Vasila Consulting (advisory), Vasila Estates (real estate investing and management), and most recently, VasilaDocs (capital raising documentation).

He credits a large portion of his success to his experiences at Asper, which included access to resources such as the Stu Clark Centre for Entrepreneurship, CEO Manitoba, North Forge Technology Exchange, as well as the staff, professors and students he learned from over the years.
