Presented by Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) and the Ministry of Economic Development and Growth, the Young Entrepreneurs, Make Your Pitch competition invites high school students in Ontario to pitch their business ideas in a two-minute video. Videos are judged through online public voting (40%) and expert judges’ scores (60%).
Twenty finalists are chosen who are awarded a trip to Toronto to pitch their ideas live at OCE’s Discovery conference and showcase, May 15-16, 2017, in front of a panel of judges from the entrepreneur community.
Based on the live pitches, the judges select six winners who are presented with reserved entry into the Summer Company program along with an award suite to be announced.
