Municipality of Huron East Congratulates Local Youth on Winning 2018 Enterprise Award

Press Release from the:

CONRAD SCHOOL OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND BUSINESS

“An Academic Engine for Entrepreneurs”

Located within Canada’s most innovative university, and in a region ranked among the top start-up ecosystems in the world, the Conrad School is the academic engine for entrepreneurship on campus, offering programs that are entrepreneurial by design

In June of 2018, Enterprise Co-op students made a pitch for five prizes of $5,000 each at its Ignition Week Pitch Competition. Each competing student had five minutes to pitch their venture to a panel of judges, followed by a three-minute question period. 

As a result, the Municipality of Huron East is excited to announce that Lucas Godkin, local entrepreneur and owner of The Axe and Adze, located just north of Seaforth, Ontario was awarded one of the Norman Esch Enterprise Co-op honours. This recognition is available to students in Engineering at the University of Waterloo.

With a passion for woodwork and eye for detail, Lucas started “The Axe and Adze” to offer homeowners unique options for furnishing their homes.

Appealing to customers, who want something more than the ‘off the shelf’ look, the business offers 100% custom woodwork, and one-of-a-kind handcrafted furniture and home decor.

All Axe and Adze products are made with sustainable and locally-sourced wood. Whether it be reclaimed-wood from a century-old barn or a tree rescued from being chipped, Lucas strives to have an ethical story behind all of his products.

“Congratulations Lucas Godkin, we look forward to watching you soar!”
