Presented by Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) and the Government of Ontario, 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 and are awarded a trip to Toronto to pitch their ideas live at OCE’s Discovery conference and showcase, May 13 & 14, 2019, 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.
Check out the highlights and awards ceremony video from the finalist event at Discovery 2018.
