Ajmal Sataar and Kathleen Kemp will be attending the largest international undergraduate business plan competition in Canada: the Queen’s Entrepreneurs’ Competition (QEC), presenting their startup: Cigbins.
Now entering its 26th year, the Queen's Entrepreneurs' Competition brings together the brightest young entrepreneurs from around the world to compete for $25,000 in cash prizes. The QEC has received business plan submissions from as far as Australia, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Scotland, South Africa, India, Singapore, Portugal, Sweden, the Philippines, the U.S. and across Canada. The Telfer team made it past the preliminary business plan grading and will have the opportunity to attend the final weekend in Kingston, and to present their plan to Canada's leading business professionals. The QEC final weekend will be taking place on January 16-18, 2014.
The QEC is well-known internationally, and the New York Times hails it as “one of the longest-running and best-known undergraduate business plan competitions in the world”.
