Accelerate Okanagan Launches Jump:Start:Challenge 2012
Monday, July 23, 2012
Accelerate Okanagan has announced the launch of the second annual "Jump:Start:Challenge" for Okanagan technology companies.
Jump:Start:Challenge is an "investor-ready" pitch competition created to support technology companies and entrepreneurs seeking to raise investment to finance their growth. An investment pitch is a 10 minute presentation made to potential investors telling them what they need to know to decide whether or not to consider investing in a company or idea.
How does the Challenge work?
Awards packages for the top three companies - to be decided by a select group of judges from the investment community - will include free office space at Accelerate Okanagan's Kelowna or Penticton Innovation Centre's and enrollment in the Venture Acceleration Program, which helps high potential technology companies accelerate their growth and maximize their opportunity.comments powered by Disqus
