UPEI business student Alex Davidson has been named PEI’s 2014 Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champion and will represent the Island at Enactus Canada’s Regional Exposition, March 6–7 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The exposition brings together student, academic, and industry leaders to celebrate the achievements of Canada’s future leaders and entrepreneurs.
Davidson’s determination and passion for his business Odd Jobbers PEI, a student-based business that encourages entrepreneurship among university students, paired with his academic excellence, warranted him the provincial title for the second year in a row.
“Being named provincial champion is an honour, and I am excited to represent Prince Edward Island once again in Halifax,” said Davidson who will compete against three other entrepreneurs from Atlantic Canada.
The entrepreneurs will compete based on feasibility, growth, entrepreneurial spirit, and market base knowledge. The regional champion will go on to compete at the Enactus Canada’s National Exposition in Calgary on April 28.
Good luck, Alex!
