Community May 01, 2015 Dundas Star News

Pat Chong, a Grade 12 student at St. Mary Catholic Secondary School, has been named one of six winners in the Young Entrepreneurs, Make Your Pitch competition.

In a Dragon’s Den-style contest, Chong pitched his idea for a company called LatchMyLanyard, a product aimed at university and college students to locate their lost lanyards through a barcode. When the barcode is scanned, it displays the name of the owner of the lanyard and offers contact information.

Chong received a variety of prizes, as well as reserved entry into Ontario’s Summer Company program, which includes a grant of up to $3,000 to help launch his business.

This is the third year Ontario Centres of Excellence, supported by the Ministry for Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure, have delivered the Young Entrepreneurs, Make Your Pitch competition.
