The J. Herbert Smith Centre for Entrepreneurship will host the 12th annual RBC Student Pitch Competition on March 22 at the Wu Conference Centre.

This competition, sponsored by RBC, gives all full-time students the opportunity to pitch their ideas for cash prizes. Students are asked to submit an executive summary to the J. Herbert Smith Centre for validation, and to prepare a three minute pitch to be presented to our panel of judges from both the entrepreneurial world and from academics.

Teams of students can compete, with a max group size of four. The two categories or ideas we will be judging this year are Growth and Ideas. Growth will be for established concepts, focusing on how the idea can now grow from the established base that has been formed. Ideas will be focused on new ideas, and how they have the potential to move forward. 

Our early bird registration is approaching fast, February 24, 2018! Final applications are due by March 11.  Register for the event.
