Event description

Description

Led by the Entrepreneurs’ Club, The National Bank Elevator Pitch Competition showcases the University of Ottawa’s top startups. As part of Global Entrepreneurship week, this competition allows both those in business with “traction” as well as entrepreneurs that are still in the early stages of “validating” their ideas to pitch to a panel of judges and win prize money and professional services. The evening also includes a catered networking portion as well as a keynote speaker that will share their personal successes and struggles as an entrepreneur. This year we plan on making the competition the most competitive to date. More information and apply.
