A project of the Enactus Windsor team earned a cash prize at the organization’s national exposition in Montreal, May 1 to 4.
Windsor joined 40 other institutions from across Canada in Montreal with the goal of presenting about the social, environmental, and economic entrepreneurship solutions they developed.
Enactus Windsor is a student-run non-profit organization supported by the Odette School of Business which aims to identify needs and solve problems in the local community through social entrepreneurship ventures.
The Windsor team made it to the semi-final round of the competition, presenting on three projects.
One of them, Youthrive, earned the position of first runner-up and a $3,000 grant from RBC Bank. The funds will be used to support the extension of the 10-week financial literacy and entrepreneurial program to more elementary and secondary schools in Windsor-Essex and surrounding regions.
The team also received support from Windsor Family Credit Union and Altairix.
