MaRS Up-Start! Competition
Join us for the sixth annual Up-Start! Competition!
Official Website: http://www.marsdd.com/events/details/up-start-competition/
The Up-Start! Competition is a business pitch competition for 2010/11 Entrepreneurship 101 students.
Individuals or teams will have 10 minutes to pitch their business idea—and they must apply concepts from Entrepreneurship 101 to make a compelling business case.
Business ideas must fit into one of the following four categories:
Information and communications technology (ICT)
Life sciences and health care
The top business plan and presentation will receive a prize of $10,000, sponsored by Tricaster Holdings Inc. – Chairman David Campbell, plus $5,000 in in-kind services from Tabrizi Law Office.
An additional prize of $10,000 will be awarded to the Best Blended Value Opportunity—one that demonstrates a social, health or environmental impact while balancing financial returns. This prize comes from an anonymous donation of $5,000, matched by SiG@MaRS.
All these lovely people attended MaRS Up-Start! Competition!
