Enactus Canada just launched its annual Student Entrepreneur National Competition, proudly presented by HSBC Bank Canada. The program recognizes and rewards full-time students who also run their own business. This year, 12 finalists will be selected to pitch their businesses to a panel of judges for a chance to win $10,000!!! It’s an experience of a lifetime for young entrepreneurs and I’m hoping I can count on your help in identifying deserving candidates and helping us spread the word.
Nominations (including self-nominations) are open from now until November 16.
Here are the eligibility criteria for the competition.
- Be a full-time undergraduate and/or graduate student at a Canadian post-secondary academic institution for the current academic year
- Be a founder and have at least 25% ownership of the company with no other individual or group with greater ownership
- Be the individual primarily responsible for the business’ day-to-day operations
- Have not been a previous National Champion of this competition or competed in the final round of this competition in the previous school year
