StFX Schwartz School of Business student Hannah Chisholm’s entrepreneurial journey continues to shine.

On January 25-26, Ms. Chisholm, an entrepreneurship student from Antigonish, NS, competed in the BMO Apex Business Plan Competition at the University of New Brunswick, presenting her vegan egg alternative business idea. Her product, called Eggcitables, is a chickpea-based vegan egg replacement.

She received second place for the undergraduate category, best elevator pitch award and people's choice award. She also received $4,000 towards her business and had the opportunity to connect with investors and business leaders. 

Just a few weeks earlier, she won $10,000 and top place honours at the 100 Seeds Atlantic competition, held in Halifax, NS.

She’s hoping to launch her business shortly after she graduates from StFX this May.

“It's been a really egg-citing month,” she says.
