Discovery is pleased to host the second edition of Young Entrepreneurs, Make Your Pitch, an entrepreneurship competition for Ontario high school students presented in collaboration with the Government of Ontario and Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) as part of the Youth Jobs Strategy.
Eighteen finalists will be chosen through a combination of public and expert voting based on a two-minute video laying out their business idea submitted online. These 18 finalists will pitch their ideas in front of a live audience and a judging panel comprised of young, influential entrepreneurs at Discovery.
This year, finalists will be chosen from six high school regions designated by the Ministry of Education from across Ontario (See Regions).
Leading up to Discovery, these young entrepreneurs will receive invaluable business advice through pitch workshops and will also benefit from the opportunity to participate in all that Discovery has to offer.
The overall winners of this competition will receive a reserved spot in Summer Company, the Province’s flagship youth entrepreneurship program. Through this program they’ll receive business training and support to turn their business idea into a reality.
