Congratulations to MERIT member, Jennifer Denouden of Avana Enterprises for winning the Young Entrepreneur award at the Regina & District Chamber of Commerce Paragon Awards!

The Young Entrepreneur award is presented to an individual under age 35 who has successfully established or expanded their business. Jennifer was honored to win her first big award in Regina where she grew up. She was surrounded by her Avana team and kids, who were especially excited for her!

Jennifer, her husband, brother, and sister-in-law established Avana Homes in 2014. The company originally started by developing residential rental properties but has since grown to include construction on multi-unit residential, commercial and light industrial properties which they own and manage. Under Jennifer’s leadership, the team has grown to 10 full-time staff members.

Although Jennifer spent 10 years as a private banker, she has become passionate for the business and for the construction industry. She is particularly proud to be a successful female real estate developer in an industry that is typically male-dominated. 
We congratulate Jennifer on winning her award and on succeeding in a fiercely competitive industry.
