Accelerate Okanagan is pleased to announce the launch of the second annual Jump:Start:Challenge
The Jump:Start:Challenge is an “investor-ready” pitch competition to support technology companies and entrepreneurs looking to start, accelerate and grow.
Entrants to the Jump:Start:Challenge will be invited to present their “investor pitch” at an open forum. The top 10 entrants will then receive eight weeks of expert training, coaching and mentorship to improve their pitch and increase their chances of raising capital.
An “investor pitch” is a 5 minute presentation (plus 3 mins. Q&A) made to potential investors telling them what they need to know to decide whether or not to invest in your company. To make your pitch “investor-ready”, you will need to prepare your presentation through the eyes of the investors and address their concerns.
Five finalists will then present their “investor ready” pitch to select members of the investment community – in Vancouver and the Okanagan.
The deadline for applications to be received is September 4th. Find out more details about this invaluable opportunity, and submit your application here.
