Four weeks culminated in five minutes for Vancouver startup Dyne whose five-minute pitch won Thursday’s virtual Valhalla Summit.

The Summit, co-hosted by investment firms Volition and Valhalla Angels, is the crescendo of a four-week investment program that sees a roster of investors widdle down a shortlist of startups to a top five. The startups receive training, make connections and gain exposure all while trying to win investment.

DYNE, a software company whose app connects diners—hungry for both food and human connection—with others and restaurants who have empty seats, was crowned the winner. 

DYNE is a UBC entrepreneur part of Venture Founder: CORE. As champions, Dyne wins the main investment of $65,000 and a chance to pitch at the Valhalla Angels Monthly Forum on November 9.
