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.

Kall received the title of Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champion because of his ability to combine a love for technology with his desire to make people feel happy and comfortable. For the one in seven adult Canadians who have difficulty sleeping, Pilōtalk produces short, relaxing audiobooks specifically for bedtime listening. Unlike big distributors, Pilōtalk focuses on the human connection of storytelling and leverages their expertise in 3D audio to ease users into slumber.
