In anticipation of RBC EPIC Founders Pitch Day, EPICentre’s latest cohort is getting ready to make their final pitches after spending the past 12-weeks working on their startups. The RBC EPIC Founders Program kicked off in May and the startups had the added challenge of pivoting to a completely virtual platform amid the COVID-19 pandemic. They’ve worked tirelessly with EPIC Program Lead Sydney Thompson for the past 12-weeks attending virtual workshops, meeting with mentors, and working on their business models. The program is set to conclude with a final pitch day on August 6th two teams will be chosen for the first and second place prize:
1st Place – $3,500 (Sponsored by the RBC Foundation)
2nd Place – $1,000 (Sponsored by the Lucas Imagine Fund)
The EPICentre Team along with EPIC mentors Maureen Lucas and Dave Kirby were in attendance to help our startups prepare for the big day by providing useful advice and feedback to each founder.
RBC EPIC Founders Pitch Day will be taking place on Thursday, August 6th from 3:00 – 5: 30 PM and will be live-streamed on Facebook.
