Michael and BojanCalgary Alberta (March 16, 2015) – Two students at the University of Alberta – Bojan Konstandinovic, owner of Intelife, and Michael Tessier, owner of Good Roots Landscaping Inc., – have been named the 2015 Student Entrepreneur Regional Champions for Western Canada. Regional Champions in Western Canada were named 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.

Konstandinovic received the title of Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion because he puts the safety of home and business owners first, while providing significant monetary savings for his customers. Intelife specializes in providing custom security solutions for the residential, industrial and commercial markets. With its state of the art technology, Intelife offers video surveillance, home automation, intrusion, fire and medical protection.

Tessier received the title of Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion because of his foresight in building meaningful business relationships and his ability to offer his clients functional, high value outdoor spaces. Good Roots Landscaping Inc. is a landscape construction company offering clients personalized spaces through which they can connect with the environment and enjoy time with their family and friends. They design and implement full property developments as well as complete site rejuvenations throughout Edmonton and surrounding areas.

“Entrepreneurship built this country,” explains Enactus Canada president Nicole Almond. “We want to encourage and celebrate this in a new generation of young leaders across Canada.”

Konstandinovic and Tessier will now compete against four other Student Entrepreneur Regional Champions from across Canada for the national title, a $10,000 cash prize and the John Dobson Cup.
