Lambton College team will represent Canada at Enactus World Cup 2019 in San Jose, California

(VANCOUVER) 9 May 2019:  – Lambton College has been named 2019 Enactus National Champion by the country’s largest experiential learning platform, Enactus Canada, and a 40 person judging panel comprised of top Canadian CEOs, for their ability to enable social, environmental and economic progress through entrepreneurial action.

Students at Lambton College in Sarnia built a food production and wholesaling business across three communities in Zambia, Africa, moving farmers up the value chain and creating a thriving local economy. This year, Enactus Lambton College trained 175 entrepreneurs to empower over 35,000 farmers. As a result, farmers’ yields are 4.6 times greater than traditional yields.

“Lambton College has a lot to be proud of! They’ve significantly improved the livelihoods of Zambian Farmers,” said Nicole Almond, Enactus Canada president. “Congratulations and good luck at the Enactus World Cup!”

Enactus Lambton College competed against 68 other post-secondary institutions in three rounds of live presentation-based challenges. Each team had 17 minutes to showcase how their entrepreneurial projects advance the social, economic and environmental health of communities, create new career opportunities, spark business innovation and change lives.

The National Champion will now advance to represent Canada at the Enactus World Cup taking place in San Jose, California September 16-18, 2019.

As a leading Enactus and Canadian youth proponent, Tim Hortons proudly hosted the Final Round of Competition, and awarded Enactus Lambton College with the honourable ‘Tim Hortons Cup’.

More than 1,500 delegates including the country’s brightest university and college students, academic professionals and top business leaders witnessed the crowning of the National Champion at the 2019 Enactus Canada National Exposition held in Toronto. The three-day event supports entrepreneurial action for social impact through competition, recognition and education.
