Lorenzo Escobal is a dynamic young man who has achieved tremendous success in a short period. In 2016, at the age of 24, he was nominated as the Young Entrepreneur of the Year for the Mississauga Board of Trade. In 2017, his company, Inception Automotive Detailing won the Consumers Choice Awards for Best Automotive Detailing in 2 regions, Toronto Central and York Region.
He founded his first business, Inception Automotive Detailing which is a professional mobile auto detailing company at the age of 18. The company has become one of the leading auto detailing companies in the Greater Toronto Area. It has been awarded Reader’s Choice Award for the Mississauga Business Times for 2014 and UOIT’s Alumni Up and Coming Award in 2015.
In 2015, Lorenzo closed a deal with Google Head Quarters in Canada who had approached him about providing a detailing service for the company. They remain one of his biggest clients.
In 2016, Lorenzo’s company successfully partnered up with Elon Musk’s Tesla Motors. Inception Automotive Detailing became the first auto detailing company in North America and the first company in the automotive category in Canada to be approved as a Destination Charging Partner. Currently, the company is only one of the 15 charging partners with Tesla Motors serving the Greater Toronto Area and its 6 million-strong population.
Apart from running his business, he has a large international network and is a seasoned guest speaker at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, University of Toronto.
Lorenzo credits part of his success to his coaches and mentors who he works very closely with. He says that working with his coaches has helped him with his vision and staying focused on his goals. Learning from the mistakes of people who are more successful than you, helps prevent you from making the same mistakes. He enjoys being a coaching student and a role model for others.
Due to his achievements in such a short period, Lorenzo has been featured in numerous news articles, interviews and national radio such as CBC Radio One Metro Morning. He has also met and rubbed shoulders with many politicians, celebrity business people and super stars. Some people include Al Pacino, Sylvester Stallone, Jay Abraham, Dragon's Den Venture Capitalists Jim Treliving, Arlene Dickinson, David Chilton, Michael Wekerle, Vikram Vij and Bruce Croxon, Robert Deluce, Christine Magee, Mayor John Henry, City of Oshawa, and Mayor Bonnie Crombie.
Lorenzo Escobal was born in the Philippines and is the youngest of four children. When Lorenzo was 10 years old the family moved to Canada. His parents saw that Canada offered better opportunities for their children’s future.
The move was a bit of a culture to the family shock initially, but they quickly adapted and started their lives over. Lorenzo has a close relationship with his parents and his three older sisters.
In 2009, Lorenzo joined the Canadian Army on a part time bases as an Artillery Soldier. Reserve Force members usually serve part time with a military unit in their community, and may serve while going to school, which is what Lorenzo did. They are paid 85 percent of Regular Force rates of pay, receive a reasonable benefits package and may qualify to contribute to a pension plan. They are not posted or required to do a military move. Reserve Force members are trained to the same level as their Regular Force counterparts. They usually begin training with their home unit to ensure that they meet the required basic professional military standards. Reserve Force members usually serve part-time with their home unit for scheduled evenings and weekends.
Between serving the army, studying and holding down a part time job at a retail store, Lorenzo had little time to do what normal 17 year olds do. The army taught him many valuable lessons such as discipline, making decisions quickly, how to handle certain situations etc. All of these lessons have taught him how to be the savvy businessman he is today.

It's rare to come across such a motivated and talented marketer like Lorenzo. I had the pleasure of working with Lorenzo in a UOIT Capstone group (similar to a 8 month co-op) for the City of Oshawa's Economic Development Services Department He was the project coordinator.
I am still am in awe with Lorenzo's drive to produce extremely thorough and creative marketing plans, his presentation skills and love for business & marketing. His passion for business is something that you don't see in a lot of students.
Due to the contributions of Lorenzo, our team won 1st place for the Royal Bank of Canada Impact Award (out of 73 fourth year UOIT business teams). Lorenzo earns my highest recommendation.
Creative Marketer and Self-Motivated Entrepreneur
Lorenzo is a top notch detailer. I was so impressed with his work, his skilled and attention to detail is second to none. I hired him to work on 2 other vehicles and he made my collector car and old motorcycle literally look new, amazing! When I learnt more about him and his company, which he started while still in school, I was even more impressed. His communication skills, professionalism, are far beyond his years. Lorenzo is driven and there is no doubt he'll continue to shine in whatever he does.
Executive Leader ♦ Product Director ♦ Strategic Thinker ♦ Growth Driver
Lorenzo, owner of Inception Automotive Detailing, is a top notch business man. He has worked on two of my cars and the results were outstanding. Inception Automotive Detailing is an extraordinary company with exceptional service and attention to detail. Lorenzo took the time to check the car prior to detailing and explained in a very logical manner all the steps he would be performing. Throughout every major step of the detailing process I got an update or a picture text message from Lorenzo informing me of his progress. The end result - AMAZING! I had to put on my sunglasses on to see my dazzling white car in the sun. I never expected such a shine as it was 1000% brighter than when I drove it off the dealer lot.
I would highly recommend Lorenzo and Inception Automotive Detailing for your next detailing job. Looking forward to my next car detailing job!
