UBC's Shad Valley team took top honours at the third annual Royal Bank Shad Entrepreneurship Cup in Toronto last month.

The team won best overall prize for their prototype of a security device, a business plan and a marketing video in the competition between nine teams from Canadian universities and one team from a campus in Scotland.

Shad Valley is an award-winning learning and leadership opportunity for outstanding senior high school students hosted at university campuses during the summer. The program is operated by Shad International, a not-for-profit organization that develops innovative leaders through science, technology and entrepreneurship.

Practice makes perfect

The Faculty of Dentistry recently received $600,000 from Scotiabank for the development of Web-based practice management software.

Bruce Birmingham, president of Scotiabank and a UBC Commerce alumnus, made the announcement on campus recently.

The Scotiabank Practice Management Technology Program, which will be developed within the faculty and phased in over a three-year period, aims to help dental students to manage three key areas of practice: business planning; efficiency reporting; and asset and inventory management.

The software will also be available to alumni and practitioners across the country.
