Canadian Export Challenge – Applications open June 1

June 1, 2020 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

This September, UPS, the Trade Commissioner Service and Export Development Canada are collaberating with Startup Canada along with Mastercard and Scotiabank, to present the first nationwide, fully-digital pitch competition for Canadian exporters powered by Google.

In light of COVID-19, the Canadian Export Challenge will aim to support entrepreneurs through these challenging times with a combination of livestream presentations, breakout sessions, and interactive learning. 

CXC will also include a digital pitch competition. Entrepreneurs will be pitching to win $5,000 (scale-up category), $2,500 (startup category), and a chance to win up to $25,000 and up to an additional $100,000 in in-kind scaling support at the Finale in October. 

Entrepreneurs are invited to apply through video submissions starting June 1st, 2020.  Visit startupcan.ca/cxc for tips on how to prepare for your pitch or to learn more about CXC 2020.
