Jasdeep Toor

Natural Science and Business, University of Calgary 2015

Jasdeep is a graduate of Natural Science and Business from the University of Calgary. His interest in entrepreneurship flourished when he chose to pursue a minor in Business after receiving a scholarship that afforded additional studies.  As an individual yearning to make a monumental positive impact, Jasdeep worked with his professor on an initiative to educate the public about energy related topics (www.energyeducation.ca) and founded a startup, coursenest (www.coursenest.com), which is revolutionizing how post-secondary students collaborate in the classroom. He also established a university non-profit organization (www.loveuc.ca) that addresses the inadequate support of underrepresented groups after volunteering in a local special needs classroom. He has been able to help many special needs classrooms, partnered with the United Way and expanded to the city of Edmonton. He also hosts an annual Fashion Show that allows developmentally disabled children to participate as models while serving to raise awareness and funds for local charities.  

In his spare time, Jasdeep enjoys learning new things, playing basketball, weightlifting, keeping up with current events and visiting with friends.
