Another year, another win for the Canisius College chapter of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO). For the ninth time in 10 years, the college’s CEO team took home Best Chapter Awards from the CEO Global Conference and Competition, which took place October 26 – 28, 2017 in Tampa, FL. The Canisius team competed against CEO chapters from more than 400 colleges and universities.

The Canisius CEO chapter won first place in the category for Best Cross Campus Innovation and Networking. The award recognizes a CEO chapter that has expanded beyond its primary audience of business majors to interact, organize and engage with other colleges or academic programs.

The Canisius CEO chapter also secured a first place win in the category for Outstanding Chapter Revenue Generating Initiative. This award recognizes a CEO chapter that generated revenue by launching a business or fundraising initiative.

Andrea Singleton ’19, president of the Canisius CEO chapter, helped lead the Canisius team to wins alongside chapter vice president Elise Miller ’19 and Ji-Hee Kim, PhD, faculty advisor to the chapter and director of the Canisius entrepreneurship program.

A total of nine Canisius students attended the global conference and competition.
