Apply to Pitch Onstage

THE APPLICATION PROCESS IS NOW CLOSED

7 deserving startups will get the chance to pitch at this year’s Startupfest, and one of them could be you. As the old saying goes, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. And to take that step onto the Startupfest stage, you have to apply.

Seven startups will be chosen from the pool of applicants to pitch on the Startupfest stage on Thursday, July 13 in front of a panel of experts, media and all in attendance.

These 7 startups will each get five minutes to pitch their hearts out (including slides), followed by a short Q&A, before one of them is crowned as having the Best Pitch! This year, startups will pitch to a judging panel that includes David Brown (Founder, TechStars), Roni Bonjack (Global Lead, Google Accelerator and Startup program). CBC Anchors will be present keeping their eye out for the next big pitch, and we’ve got two more top tier judges we’ve yet to announce.

APPLICATION FOR THIS PRIZE DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR ABILITY TO PITCH FOR ANY OTHER PRIZES. ALL OTHER PITCHING OPPORTUNITIES (THE INVESTMENT PRIZE, GRANDMOTHERS’ CHOICE, ETC.) ARE STILL OPEN TO ALL STARTUPS ONSITE.

We’ll announce the winners on June 14th. Good luck!
