Start It Up!

L to R: Gillian, Alisha, & Emilia

Two Economics majors were part of the winning team at the Start It Up! entrepreneurial competition hosted by the Acadia Entrepreneurship Centre in December. Team Highway 101 pitched a mobile produce market idea called "The Bus," which would sell produce that would otherwise be rejected by retailers at a reduced cost to customers.  Gillian (Economics), Emilia (Economics & Environmental Studies), and Alisha (Community Development & Environmental Studies) took home the $6000 top prize for their business idea.
