TORONTO, Aug. 11 /CNW/ - Crescent Entrepreneurial Association (CEA) is
holding the first ever business case competition for Muslims in Canada. The
competition will give youth (ages 14-18) and professionals (ages 19-35) the
opportunity to pitch their unique ideas and business proposals to a panel of
judges, gain invaluable feedback in the process, and be in the running for
over $5,000 worth of cash prizes at the end of the event.
"There is a lot of potential and creative talent within our community
that often goes unrealized. We hope to channel and focus some of this talent,"
said Aazar Zafar, chairman of CEA. "Long-term, this entrepreneurial spirit can
enable our community to become more self-sufficient and positively contribute
to North America by providing jobs for others and increasing overall
productivity," he said.
The event will also feature keynote speakers including Fareed Amin, the
Deputy Minister of Economic Trade & Development in Ontario; and accomplished
entrepreneurs Raehan Bobby Umar, Mona Sharkawy & Chris Nguyen.
The CEA is the leading resource of Muslim entrepreneurs in Canada with

thinking. For more details, please visit our website: www.ceavision.com
