Introducing the Ignite Top 27 Finalists!

The first round of Ignite pitches are complete and we have our Top 27!

Ignite saw 67 incredible innovation, technology or invention based businesses apply. This week, Ignite held three separate competitions for the three categories; Student Entrepreneur, Young Entrepreneur and General Entrepreneur. During the competitions, each participant had only 60 seconds to convince the judges that their startup was viable and investment worthy. Being able to pitch in one minute is not easy, but it shows the need to communicate clearly, quickly, and to engage your audience when speaking about your start-up business.

Spark Centre would like to congratulate the 27 companies selected to move on to the Round 2 Pitch Competition on October 13th at the Abilities Centre in Whitby.
