Remsoft CEO Andrea Feunekes Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

October 15th, 2015

FREDERICTON, N.B. - Andrea Feunekes, CEO and co-founder of Fredericton-based Remsoft, has won the Adam Chowaniec Lifetime Achievement award in the Atlantic division of the Startup Canada Awards.

The annual awards celebrate and distinguish outstanding achievement in advancing Canadian entrepreneurship. The Adam Chowaniec Lifetime Achievement Award was one of nine awards distributed at the Startup Canada Awards Regional Reception in Halifax, N.S. on Wednesday evening.

“I’m very humbled to have been recognized in this way,” says Feunekes, who co-founded Remsoft in 1992 and grew the company from a startup to a global exporter of software and services. “To stand among so many other big names all working to grow and instill the entrepreneurial spirit in our region and throughout Canada is truly an honour.”

In addition to her work with Remsoft, Feunekes is being recognized for her contributions to Fredericton, New Brunswick and Atlantic Canada’s entrepreneurial communities in her promotion of an entrepreneurial and innovative knowledge-based economy. This includes her work with the Knowledge Industry Task Force (KITF), the Premier’s Innovation Council, the Crown Lands Task Force, the NB Business Council, The Wallace McCain (UNB) Institute for Business Leadership and as the Chair of FutureNB.

“Andrea has undoubtedly been a driving force behind establishing a strong startup scene and various innovative sectors within the region. Whether she’s coaching young entrepreneurs or advocating for the use of tech within the province’s traditional resource sectors, she’s been an invaluable asset towards shaping our community” says Dr. Dhirendra Shukla, Technology Management & Entrepreneurship Program Chair at the University of New Brunswick, named the most Entrepreneurial University in Canada by Startup Canada last year.

Feunekes is among five award winners from Fredericton and New Brunswick, including Fredericton’s Startup Community for Entrepreneurship Support, Wear Your Label for Sustainable Development, Introhive’s David Alston for Entrepreneur of the Year and Enterprise Promotion and RtTech Software Inc. of Moncton for Innovation.

Feunekes is now a finalist for the national award title, advancing alongside the four other regional winners from Ontario, Quebec, Prairies, and West Coast and the North. National awards will be distributed at the CN Tower in Toronto, ON on December 1st.
