WINNIPEG — A full-time university student who also owns two local businesses has been named Manitoba’s top student entrepreneur for 2010 by a national group that offers entrepreneurial programs for post-secondary students.
Justin Kathan, owner of DECO Windshield Repair and KuRV Apparel, was named Manitoba Champion by Advancing Canadian Entrepreneurship, a Toronto-based non-profit organization.
He will now represent Manitoba in the next round of the ACE competition, which will be held March 5 at the ACE Regional Exposition in Calgary. If he’s also named regional champion, he’ll move on to the national round of the competition, scheduled for May 12 in Calgary.
DECO Windshield Repair specializes in repairing chipped or cracked windshields within 15 minutes, while KuRV provides high school students with an easy way to purchase and customize high-school-graduation clothing.
