Event description
Not a typical pitch competition! 4 Minutes + 0 Slides + Creativity = Chance to win $1,000!

About this Event

Startup Ideas × Creative Performances

The Impact Centre is looking for aspiring and current entrepreneurs at the University of Toronto to pitch their startup ideas in creative and unconventional ways for a chance to win a cash prize.

You get 4 minutes and 0 slides and in addition to your idea we will judge you on the creativity of your performances! The winner will pocket a $1,000 cash prize.

Register to attend or apply to compete to participate in an afternoon of possibilities including: beatboxing for biotech, miming for medical devices, a cappella for AI, sculpting for social ventures, rapping for robotics, graffiti for games, singing for sustainability, and puppetry for pharmaceuticals!

The event is open to the public to register and attend. However, as this is a free public event, we know that not everyone who registers for tickets will actually attend. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis; please arrive in good time for the start of the event.

Competition Eligibility

You may compete as a solo performer or have a team performance. The lead applicant must have one of the following statuses:

  • Current University of Toronto undergraduate or graduate student
  • Current University of Toronto postdoctoral fellow, staff, or faculty
