Scott DuncanWATERLOO, ONTARIO (February 16, 2016) – Scott Duncan, owner of Arc Home Automation Inc. and student at University of Waterloo has been named Enactus Canada’s 2016 Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champion for Ontario. Provincial Champions coast to coast were named today 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.

Duncan received the title of Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champion because he is tackling a fundamentally important environmental issue: energy consumption.

Arc Home Automation Inc. is designing a smart air vent system which works with your smart thermostat to provide room-by-room comfort control, preventing uncomfortable temperature differences and reducing your home energy bills by up to 30%.

“I believe that in order for society to achieve sustainability, it must improve its production, distribution, and consumption of energy,” said Duncan. “This opportunity to reduce our ecological footprint helps me keep motivated and passionate about my business.”

Duncan will showcase both his business and personal accomplishments as an entrepreneur at the Enactus Canada Regional Exposition – Central Canada in Mississauga, Ontario on March 11, where he will compete for the title of Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion.

“At the core of Enactus is the belief that business can be used to address environmental issues and our students prove this theory every day,” said Enactus Canada president Nicole Almond. “Scott is an example of how when armed with entrepreneurial spirit, we can make the world a better place to live and we are proud to showcase that kind of business acumen through the Student Entrepreneur National Competition.”

Duncan will compete against three additional Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champions from Central Canada for the regional title and the chance to move on to the 2016 Enactus Canada National Exposition in Toronto, Ontario taking place May 2-4. The National Champion will receive a $10,000 cash prize and take home the John Dobson Cup.
