$40,000 donated by the National Bank to support Entrepreneurship at the Telfer School
We have received a generous donation from the funds raised in the 6th Annual National Bank One for Youth Bicycle Tour. The donation which was presented by the National Bank on July 8, 2016, will help fund the Entrepreneurs’ Club Elevator Pitch Competition.
The annual Elevator Pitch Competition showcases some of the University of Ottawa’s top talent. As a part of Global Entrepreneurship week, this competition allows young entrepreneurs to present their business ideas that are still in the early stages of development to a panel of judges and Rise to the Top. The winners are awarded with a generous cash prize that they can put towards furthering their business idea. The evening also includes a catered networking portion as well as a keynote speaker that shares their personal successes and struggles as an entrepreneur. This year we plan on making the competition the most competitive to date.
