Sudbury’s Northern Centre for Advanced Technology (NORCAT) and the Northern Ontario Angels, a regional investor network, has asked entrepreneurs to share their new business ideas to a room of prospective angel investors at the inaugural Sudbury PITCH 2014 on May 1.
The event will feature presentations to angel investors, community leaders, and judges following a format similar to CBC’s Dragon’s Den show.
Audience members will be engaged to vote for the best business pitch for a People’s Choice Award. The winning pitch receives services and support valued over $25,000.
“We are excited to work with a variety of partners to launch Sudbury PITCH 2014! – a fun and entertaining evening focused on getting business done,” said NORCAT CEO Don Duval, himself a former tech entrepreneur. “We are encouraging entrepreneurial startups seeking capital to strongly consider this opportunity to engage prospective angel investors that could help them achieve their goals and aspirations.”
