OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWINNIPEG, MANITOBA (February 11, 2014) – Sinan Leylek, owner of Party Pyrotechnics, and full-time student at the University of Manitoba, has been named Manitoba’s 2014 Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champion. Provincial Champions coast to coast 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.

Leylek receives the title of Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champion because of his ability to balance the demands of a full-time course and a growing business. Party Pyrotechnics is a consumer and commercial oriented rental service, supplying easy to use DJ equipment through an online store, with delivery and pick-up.

Leylek will showcase his business and personal accomplishments as an entrepreneur at the Enactus Canada Regional Exposition – Central Canada in Toronto on March 14, where he will compete for the title of Regional Champion.

“Sinan is the epitome of a young entrepreneur,” explains Enactus Canada president Nicole Almond. “This entrepreneurial spirit is what built this country and we want to encourage and celebrate this energy in students across Canada.”

Leylek will compete against three other Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champions from Central Canada for the regional title and the chance to move on to 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.
