EPIC VentureWomen Final Pitch Competition
December 9, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
EPICentre strives to build a more inclusive and innovative ecosystem to support women changemakers through the EPIC VentureWomen Program. This program provides female founders and co-founders the opportunity to explore their ideas, increase their entrepreneurial skills, and build a business that is future-proof.
Since late August, seven women-led ventures have been engaging in several workshops, networking events, team-building exercises, group discussions, mentor and advisory meetings, and more.
Join us on Thursday, December 9th for the VentureWomen Final Pitch Competition where each of the seven ventures will pitch their business idea to a panel of judges and LIVE audience. Three awards, sponsored by the Shibley Righton LLP, Lucas Imagine Fund, and Logic Executive Search & Workplace Solutions, will be available to the presenting teams:
- Top Pitch Award: $3,000
- She Inspires Award: $1,000
- People’s Choice Award: $1,000
The People’s Choice Award will be determined by the LIVE audience. A voting poll will be available after each team has presented for the audience to vote on their favourite pitch. If you register for this event, make sure to stick around to vote on your favourite business pitch!
