MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO (March 14, 2016) – Scott Duncan, owner of Arc Home Automation Inc. and student at University of Waterloo, has been named Central Canada’s 2016 Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion. Regional Champions in Central 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.
Duncan’s company, 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%.
Duncan received the title of Student Entrepreneur Regional Champion because he is a hard-working, tenacious young entrepreneur who is tackling energy issues through the design and implementation of innovative home heating systems.
This title allows Duncan to showcase his business and personal accomplishments on the national stage at the Enactus Canada National Exposition in Toronto on May 3, 2016, where he will compete for the title of Student Entrepreneur National Champion.
Duncan will now compete against five other Student Entrepreneur Regional Champions from across Canada for the national title, a $10,000 cash prize and the John Dobson Cup.
