Paul Shumlich, founder of Deepwater Farms and fourth year BBA student, has been awarded the Student Entrepreneur of the Year by the Calgary Entrepreneurs Organization. Paul’s company uses aquaponics technology to provide year round, organic, locally grown produce to area restaurants. As part of the award, Paul will receive $5000 and a trip to Toronto to compete in the Canada-wide competition. This is Paul’s second award for Deepwater Farms, having been the LaunchPad winner this past April.
A year ago, Derek Rucki, Mount Royal University student, and developer of TLink Golf was also awarded the Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Two consecutive winners are a testament to not only the quality of students here at Mount Royal University but also to the Innovation and Entrepreneur program within the Bissett School of Business..
Bissett School of business wishes to congratulate Paul on his achievement as well as wishing him good luck in the Toronto competition. To read the Metro News Calgary article profiling Paul’s winning endeavor, please follow the link:
