Enactus - Central Regional 2014 2-12TORONTO, ONTARIO (March 17, 2014) – Veronica Lockyer, owner of Glass Tower Offices Corporation and student at Loyalist College, has been named 2014 Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion for Central Canada by this country’s largest student leadership development organization, Enactus Canada, and proud program supporter, the John Dobson Foundation, as part of the Student Entrepreneur National Competition.

Veronica received the title of Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion after beating out three other student entrepreneurs from across Central Canada at the Enactus Canada Regional Exposition on March 14 in Toronto.

A panel of local entrepreneurs and business leaders voted Veronica regional champion for her passion to succeed with a new kind of social enterprise and commitment to changing attitudes around what at-risk women can accomplish.

Together with the local community, Glass Tower Offices Corporation is supporting the efforts of hard working women who have fallen through the cracks in society by ensuring they have a safe, positive home, an accountable goal structure and a renewed belief that their value is respected by the local and global community.

“Veronica has taken her personal experience and turned it into a business that helps other at-risk women be successful,” said Enactus Canada president Nicole Almond. “When you combine personal passion, business savvy and the entrepreneurial spirit, you find a unique entrepreneur.”

Veronica will compete against five other Student Entrepreneur Regional Champions from across Canada for the national title at the 2014 Enactus Canada National Exposition in Calgary, Alberta taking place April 28-30. The National Champion will receive a $10,000 cash prize and take home the John Dobson Cup.
