Overbeeke Family Entrepreneurship Excellence Award
The Conrad School would like to extend our gratitude to the Overbeeke family as we introduce the newest award in support of undergraduate entrepreneurs.
The Overbeeke Family Entrepreneurship Excellence Award is presented to a full-time undergraduate student enrolled in any year in the Faculty of Engineering who is pursuing an Enterprise Co-op (E Co-op) opportunity. Selection is based on the development of an outstanding presentation, business plan review, clarity of business description and preparedness to lead a venture or social enterprise as demonstrated through the beginning of term pitch competition. One scholarship of up to $5,000 will be awarded each term between Spring 2022 and through to Fall 2024.
We are proud to introduce the inaugural winner!
Bara Husseini, Easy Green
Easy Green aims to provide middle eastern homes with a method of generating electricity and an alternative way to heat via a solar panel and a heat pump kit. Transforming traditional houses into environmentally friendly homes will reduce carbon emissions and utility bills. Jordan’s ideal environment and energy credit system will allow for excess energy generated in the summer to provide for the heat pump in the winter (indirectly). Join the Race to Make the World a Better Place with Easy Green.
Bara is also one of the recipients of the Norman Esch Enterprise Co-op Awards this term.
The E-Launch Awards are presented to the winners of the pitch competition among students in the E Co-op program. Congratulations to our winners, who have been awarded $5,000 each by our experienced panel of judges.
