Description

Join the HBS Club of Toronto as we host the Canadian Alumni New Venture (NVC) Finals. Last year’s Canadian winner, Vention (Etienne Lacroix, MBA 2011 - see pitch video), was the Runner-up Winner at the HBS Finals and won the $25,000 prize.

The short-listed Canadian finalists will pitch their plans to our judging panel, followed by questions from the panel, with the winner going on to represent Canada at the Global Finals in Boston being announced that evening.

Prior to the presentations, our esteemed and diverse judging panel will provide their perspectives on what it takes to build, launch and run a successful new venture. Our judges include Mary Ann Turcke, Leagh Turner, Marty Parker, and Andrew Graham. Click HERE to view additional information on our judges.
