Student Entrepreneur to receive $10,000 prize and represent Canada at Global Student Entrepreneur Awards in Washington, D.C.
TORONTO, ON (May 8, 2013): Nick May, owner of REMAY and student at Carleton University, has been named the 2013 Student Entrepreneur National Champion by charitable organization, Enactus Canada and proud program supporter, the John Dobson Foundation.
May will take the John Dobson Cup home to Ottawa because he balances the demands of a full time university course load with the pressure of running a company. He manufactures cosmetic products and specifically he has developed and designed a shaving product for woman to use inside or outside of the shower, transforming “shaving cream” into a “soft gel bar”.
“I’m very excited to be part of this prestigious event and come out as National Champion,” said May. “There were a lot of tough competitors and it was so close but you just have to relax and enjoy the moment.”
May was awarded the title of Student Entrepreneur National Champion by a panel of industry leaders and seasoned entrepreneurs serving as judges at the 2013 Enactus Canada National Exposition.
“Entrepreneurs are the foundation of this country and Enactus Canada is pleased to celebrate and support Nick’s combined business and academic achievements,” explains Nicole Almond, Enactus Canada president. “We hope his entrepreneurial spirit will serve as inspiration to other student entrepreneurs across the country.”
With the national title and a $10,000 prize, Nick May will now go on to represent Canada at the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards in Washington, D.C.
