Presented by Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) and the Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure, the Young Entrepreneurs, Make Your Pitch competition invites high school students in Ontario to pitch their business ideas in a two-minute video. Videos are judged through online public voting (40%) and expert judges’ scores (60%).
Twenty finalists are chosen who are awarded a trip to Toronto to pitch their ideas live at OCE’s Discovery conference and showcase, April 27-28, 2015, in front of a panel of judges from the entrepreneur community.
Based on the live pitches, the judges select six winners who are presented with reserved entry into the Summer Company program, a $750 education voucher from Desire2Learn, a Nymi Band from Nymi and a Muse brain-sensing headband by InteraXon.
Check out the highlights and awards ceremony video from the finalist event at Discovery 2015.
