The JMH LaunchPad Pitch Competition is Mount Royal University's largest student entrepreneurship celebration of the year.

Students and recent alumni from across campus pitched their ventures for the chance to win their share of $80,000 in cash and in-kind services. This celebration is a 300+ person event filled with eager community members, faculty, fellow students, and investors interested in hearing about the next great idea.

Teams are given five minutes to pitch to a panel of esteemed judges and a supportive audience, followed by another five minutes of Q&A from the judges. The most promising ventures were awarded their share of $80,000 in cash and in-kind services in a digital event and will have been working to grow those ventures until you hear from them!


Cash Bar + Appetizers will be available.
