A BDO Event

As a tech entrepreneur, you know your business has the potential to go the distance. All it needs to take the next step is capital and a strategic partner. Enter VC Pitch Day. This unique event provides up-and-coming entrepreneurs and startups the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of venture capitalists from some of Canada’s top industry heavyweights.

BDO’s VC Pitch Day is no mere pitch competition. Their VCs have set no cap on the number of groups they will invest in. They have one item on their agenda: the best new Canadian ideas. To get the process started, please complete the online application form, telling them your startup story.

They have left no stone unturned in scouring the country for the best ideas Canadian entrepreneurs have to offer. BDO’s VC Pitch Day 2019 includes five separate pitch events in cities across the country – including Halifax!
