HALIFAX (March 4, 2013) – Daniel Saulnier, owner of Memories2Go and full-time student at Université de Moncton, has been named a 2013 Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion. 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 was awarded the title of Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion by a panel of industry leaders serving as judges at the Enactus Canada Regional Exposition in Halifax because he balances the demands of a full time university course load with the pressure of 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.

”I’m so pleased to have been recognized by Enactus Canada and the John Dobson Foundation for this award,” says Saulnier, “Being publicly named Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion opens up so many opportunities for my company and inspires me to be an even stronger business leader.”

John Kavanagh, Economic Development Manager, ACOA Nova Scotia, presented the Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion awards on behalf of Enactus Canada.

“Daniel comes from a family of entrepreneurs and we are pleased to celebrate and support his combined business and academic efforts,” explains Enactus Canada president Nicole Almond. “Being a student entrepreneur is not easy, but we hope successes like Daniel inspire other student entrepreneurs across the country.”

With the regional title, Saulnier now also has the chance to become National Champion at 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.
