We’re so excited to announce that our very own Pierre Martell has received the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) 2011 Young Entrepreneur Award (YEA) in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan today!
Sponsored by Deloitte, Cisco, BLG, Sage and The Globe and Mail, here are some details about this prestigious award:
Created by the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) in 1988, the YEA pay tribute to remarkable young Canadian entrepreneurs who are outstanding not only because of their success in business, but also because of their creativity, innovative spirit and community involvement.
Nominees will be evaluated based on: the originality of the business concept; the company’s success and growth potential ; and the entrepreneur’s and the company’s community involvement. The panel also considers the entrepreneur’s age when the business was started and any special challenges that were overcome.
Pierre’s success was also published in the New Brunswick Business Journal earlier today:
Martell said he was honoured and humbled to be recognized for his entrepreneurship. It hasn’t always been an easy journey, but he says he’s always abided by the principles he put in place: to give the client as stress-free an experience as possible.
“We’ve never missed a closing date, we’ve never gone over budget, and so far … 100 per cent of our customers have had a great experience,” Martell said.
