Contest invites young entrepreneurs to hone skills, win prizes

The next generation of Canadian entrepreneurs will have a chance to present their ideas for an innovative, direct-to-consumer product; build their resumé; gain experience working as part of an entrepreneurial team; network with business leaders; and qualify for a chance to win cash and prizes by participating in the Canadian Academic Entrepreneur Challenge.

The Challenge, sponsored by the Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF), will have participants utilize business, creative and critical-thinking skills, says the program’s academic advisory Derek Hassay.

“Shared, real-world projects are incredibly important for all students during this ‘virtual’ period in our lives and this inclusive initiative can play a crucial role in fulfilling that need,” he said.

Challenge registration is now open and first round submissions are due by November 12, 2021.
