Calling all entrepreneurial spirits: right this way to the Young Entrepreneurs, Make Your Pitch competition!

Are you a high school student with a great business idea? The Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) and the Government of Ontario invite you to pitch your business idea in a two-minute video that will be voted on by experts and the public. The video should explain your idea, what problem you are solving, why your business will be successful, and who your customers will be. 

Twenty finalists will be invited to Toronto where they will present their business ideas at the OCE’s Discovery conference and showcase, held on May 13 and May 14, 2019. Six winners will then be chosen to enter the Summer Company program and receive up to $3,000 each to run their summer businesses. Winners will also receive Muse 2 headbands from InteraXon and $750 education vouchers.  

The video submission deadline is March 22, 2019.
