Make Your Pitch Campaign Underway In Northwestern Ontario

Posted on Friday, October 6, 2017 09:00 AM

Local High School students are being encouraged to come up with a business idea that could lead to support in seeing it become a reality.

The 'Young Entrepreneurs: Make Your Pitch' competition is now accepting submissions.

Chief Executive Officer with the Ontario Centres of Excellence Tom Corr says the campaign is entering its sixth year.

Corr says they have received 834 video entries over the course of the campaign.

He says the best twenty submissions will receive business coaching and mentoring and the opportunity to present their ideas to a panel of judges next Spring.

Corr says the six best will have an opportunity to attend Summer school and business training to help launch their idea.

Some of the winners have come from northwestern Ontario students.

A two-minute video must first be produced and submitted by next March.
