Zahra Hirji: Enactus SFU makes history at regional entrepreneurship competition | Beedie Newsroom

SFU became the first school to win all four categories at the Enactus Regional Exposition for Western Canada, a competition where teams of students present community outreach projects and business ventures to a judging panel of business leaders. This year’s Regional Exposition for Western Canada was held in Calgary from March 2-3, with 19 universities competing for the regional champion titles. Enactus is a community of student, academic and business leaders who are using entrepreneurial action to create a better, more sustainable world.

The Enactus SFU team, including several Beedie students and alumni, secured first place in each of the Regional Exposition’s four categories: the TD Entrepreneurship Challenge, the Capital One Financial Education Challenge, the Scotiabank EcoLiving Green Challenge, and the Scotiabank Youth Empowerment Challenge. Having won the Regional Exposition, the SFU students will now face the top teams from across Canada at the National Exposition in Vancouver from May 9-11.

“I am incredibly proud of my competition teams, supporters, and execs,” says Enactus SFU President Rajin Shokar. “We made history in Calgary, becoming the first team to win all four categories at the Western Canada Regional Exposition. It’s even more special this year, as our teams will now be competing on home turf at the National Exposition.”

[…] Coast Cards was also showcased in the TD Entrepreneurship Challenge category championed by Beedie undergraduates Zahra Hirji and Jessica Truong with SIAT designers Jason Chung and Carolyn Yip, who were coached by Beedie students Hangue Kim and Nikhita Bhatt.
