After a year break, The 2021 RBC EPIC Business Model Canvas Competition returned a thrilling success that saw entrepreneurially minded students from across Canada walk away with over $20,000 in prizes. The weekend event started with an exciting talk from Amr Abdelgawad, COO of NERv Technology Inc, about building a successful start-up, gaining valuable insight from product stakeholders and customers, and how to use that insight to develop a better product and stronger business.
The competition then commenced on day 2 with our semi-finalist presentations. Of 21 talented semi-finalists teams, 5 were chosen to advance to the final round of the LIVE competition. It was only following rigorous delegation that the 2021 RBC EPIC BMCC winners were chosen.
Seedling Art Co took home the KPMG Financial Competency award and $750 cash, and DECAPwon our second prize of $2500.
AfterSell, was awarded the Postmedia People’s Choice Award,$2000 of in-kind advertising, AND our Grand Prize of $10000 cash!
We congratulate and thank all of our semi-finalists and winners for an exceptional job well done! Their excellent submissions and presentations made this an event that was truly exciting and inspiring to the host. We also extend our sincerest gratitude to our generous sponsors and supporters at Royal Bank of Canada, Postmedia, The Windsor Star, and KPMG. Without their support, the RBC EPIC BMCC would not be possible.
