This year, Ontario Centres of Excellence Discovery was pleased to host a competition targeted towards Ontario’s high school aged innovators. Young Entrepreneurs, Make Your Pitch is an entrepreneurship competition for Ontario high school students presented by the Ministry of Economic Development Trade and Employment and its partners.
Eighteen finalists were chosen through a combination of public and expert voting based on a two-minute video laying out their business idea submitted online. These 18 finalists pitched their ideas in front of a live audience and a judging panel comprised of young, influential entrepreneurs at Discovery.
Leading up to Discovery, these young entrepreneurs received invaluable business advice through pitch workshops and also benefited from the opportunity to participate in all that Discovery had to offer.
The six (6) winners of this competition won a reserved spot in Summer Company, the Province’s flagship youth entrepreneurship program. Through this program they’ll receive business training and support to turn their business idea into a reality.
WEtech Alliance is pleased to announce that Riley Tsang of Sandwich Secondary School and his company, Simplistic Lawn Care, was chosen as one of six winners of the competition. For more information on Simplistic Lawn Care, click here.
