MONCTON (February 26, 2013) – Daniel Saulnier, owner of Memories2Go and full-time student at Université de Moncton, has been named New Brunswick’s 2013 Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champion. Provincial Champions were named by national charitable organization, Enactus Canada and proud program supporter, the John Dobson Foundation as part of the Student Entrepreneur National Competition.
Saulnier received the title of Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champion because he balances the demands of a full time university course load with the pressure of also running a company. His business, Memories2Go, is a portable photo booth rental company that offers instant print souvenirs for special events and marketing solutions in the Maritimes. It is co-owned with business partner, Pascal DeGrâce.
“Growing up in a family filled with entrepreneurs always made me very intrigued and interested in having my own business,” said Saulnier. “We’re passionate about what we do. We bring many smiles and laughter into people’s lives and for us, it’s absolutely priceless.”
Saulnier will showcase his business and his accomplishments as an entrepreneur at the Enactus Canada Regional Exposition – Atlantic Canada in Halifax on March 1st, where he will compete for the title of Regional Champion.
“Daniel is the epitome of a young entrepreneur because of how much joy he derives from his business,” explains Enactus Canada president Nicole Almond. “This entrepreneurial spirit is what built this country and what we want to encourage and celebrate in other student entrepreneurs across Canada.”
Saulnier will compete against three other Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champions from Atlantic Canada for the regional title and the chance to move on to the 2013 Enactus Canada National Exposition in Toronto, Ontario taking place on May 8th. The National Champion will receive a $10,000 cash prize and represent Canada at the international level of competition, the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards.
