Third place – $300
Congratulations to our third-place winner, Sam Gan, for sharing his frosh year entrepreneurial venture – Trekker Tuck. To begin his journey, Sam recognized an opportunity where he could develop a cost-effective business to provide an array of snack items to students in the MacKinnon Hall residence at StFX. Due to the lack of late night food options available within a short walk of MacKinnon Hall, Sam saw a chance to provide snacks to students in residence for the cost of the item plus a small fee. Sam kept records of his inventory in an Excel file and was constantly adapting to changing customer preferences. Sam is a local entrepreneur that leveraged his position in a residence of 130 students to provide valued goods to students in a mutually beneficial setting.
