During the semi-finals on March 31st, the 16 teams from the Gestion de commerce and Business Management programs presented their final projects, an original business concept. A jury of teachers selected 6 teams to move forward to the grand final on April 6th.
“Entrepreneurship runs in our veins at LaSalle College,” said Claude Marchand, President and CEO of the LCI Education network, during his opening speech, and the 6 finalist teams were quick to prove him right. One at a time, the teams Canvas, Dailyvreur, Fix N Go, NoTrack, Play Time Sports and TeachUp were called before a jury made up of big names in the industry: Martin Lemay, partner at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton; Éric Arminjon, president at Dans un Jardin; Jean-François St-Pierre, director – Student community relations at HEC Montréal and Manuel Champagne, deputy director at Détail Québec.
Throughout the presentations and while the jury deliberated, students, along with their families and teachers, went to the Le Fuchsia restaurant for the graduation ceremony and a festive cocktail hour.
When the jury returned, the Dailyvreur team was awarded the 2.017 inc. grand prize, a $2,000 grant provided by the main event sponsor, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton. Dailyvreur is a personalized delivery service that adapts to the busy and variable schedules of today’s customers.
