Three Faculty of Business Administration students, Edgar Gallibois, Justin Murray and Matthew Corey, won the Enterprise 2008 Business Plan Competition run by the Business Development Bank of Canada. The competition is the largest business plan competition in Canada, and this is the second consecutive year that winners of the regional qualifying competition, Enterprise Atlantic, have claimed top spot in the nation.

Gallibois, Murray, and Corey represented UNB as VerifyRX and defeated 11 other teams en route to capturing the top spot in the competition. Originally 90 schools attempted to qualify for the national competition in Vancouver.

For their victories in the regional and national competitions the team received $23,000 in prize money.
