Battle of the Pitch Decks is back, and this time the competition is not only crossing regional borders, but provincial ones too! Join us virtually in Vancouver, Whitehorse, Victoria and the Okanagan as three startups pitch-off in their cities for local prizes, followed by each city winner battling it out in the finale for ultimate bragging rights!

Battle Schedule:

  • March 11: Vancouver
  • March 31: Whitehorse
  • April 21: Victoria
  • May 5: Okanagan
  • June 2: Finale (1 startup winner from each city)

Each Startup will have 7 minutes to share their pitch deck with the virtual audience and panel of judges. The winner will be decided by the end of the event following panel feedback. 

If you’re an entrepreneur, an investor or just a big fan of the competitors - make sure you register and tune in to learn more about each company, and hear from the judges on how they all did - this is an educational event like no other!
