Event description


The Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Haskayne School of Business—University of Calgary is hosting several events during Global Entrepreneurship Week from November 14-19, 2016.

In the spirit of Global Entrepreneurship Week, we are hosting a pitch clinic, facilitated by Kris Hans of Market Grade to end the week with a bang!

Want to learn what makes a good business pitch and how to structure it? Learn the basics, build your pitch, meet with our mentors and practice your skills.

Finalists will be selected by mentors to compete in a "Pitch Off" for up to $10,000 of in-kind prizes including consultations from Bennett Jones, Market Grade & PwC Canada, co-working space at the Collective, invitation to ATB BoostR's crowdfunding platform and entrance into ATB's Project X accelerator program. 

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them take the next step in their entrepreneurial journey. These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors—introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.
