profile from 2013

In 2013, the Queen's Entrepreneurs' Competition (QEC) celebrated 25 Years. The first QEC operated on a shoestring budget and was open to Queen’s students only. Meredith (Quinn) Van Binsbergen, BCom’90 and six fellow Commerce students organized the one-day event, which featured two speakers and a gala dinner. Twenty-five years later, the QEC attracted business plans from 40 teams from around the world for the preliminary round, with the top 18 invited to attend the two-day Final Weekend.

“I am amazed and delighted that the QEC has thrived since our inaugural year,” said Meredith. “The international reach, high number of participating teams and the sophistication of the business ventures put forward reflect that the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well among today’s university students.”
