|Support our local entrepreneurs! Join us at SPARC Entrepreneur Challenge and watch contestants compete for over $55,000 in cash and prizes for their business ideas. Competition is similar to CBC’s Dragons’ Den © where contestants will pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges who are successful local business owners.
Six finalists have been selected to pitch their ideas to the judges.
Presenters will be evaluated on a 4 minute presentation delivered the night of the event, and a 5 minute question and answer period following the presentation. The judges will each be investing $1000 toward the event and will function as venture capital investors deciding on which business idea they would most likely fund. The quality of the idea and the clarity and persuasiveness of the presentation all influence the judges’ decisions.
You also get a chance to vote – the audience favourite will receive an extra $1000 in cash for their business!!
The agenda for the event is as follows:
The event is being held on Friday, March 4th at the Georgian Manor Resort. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Contact the Small Business Enterprise Centre at 105 Hurontario Street or visit us online.
