Meet the Entrepreneurs
Meet the Judges
Three Pitch Events + One Grand Finale
The Kootenay Pitch Competition features three pitch events in November, January and March. At each pitch event, four entrepreneurs will be chosen to pitch their business idea to a panel of judges that includes investors, technology experts, funding agencies and experienced entrepreneurs who have global connections to both markets and investment capital.
The winners of each competition event, the top three, will face off in the Grand Finale pitch competition in April 2021 where the Grand Final winner will be crowned.
Each event will take place in-person with a limited capacity due to COVID-19 at Nelson Innovation Centre and also live-streamed so people can tune in from across the province and beyond.
