Realizing many early-stage entrepreneurs’ lack of ability to deliver an effective business pitch, Pitch101 founder Bob Williamson made it his personal challenge to teach those alike the ins-and-outs of the perfect one-minute elevator pitch. While embarking on his Pitch101 mission, Bob realized the potential for an even larger event… a way to highlight exceptional business pitchers from coast to coast, and thus Canada’s Pitch Competition was born.

Canada’s Pitch Competition brings together top pitchers from across Canada for a weekend event of explaining their business in one minute to an elite panel of potential investors and judges. Participants can further enjoy the event by networking with professionals and indulging in delicious food and great entrepreneurial company, while knowing that if their pitch is the best they could win thousands in cash!

Up to 16 pitchers pitch for 1 minute followed by 3 minute Q&A and a 2-minute critique with investor-judges.
