Last year, Inventures represented the single largest source of venture capital in Canada.

Six pitch competition winners will each receive $10,000 in funding, free registration, and access to professional coaching. They will get exposure to funding organizations, including members of the National Angel Capital Organization, representing over 40 networks comprised of over 3000 angel investors across Canada.

  • Blockchain Breakthroughs
  • Integrating the Artificial Mind
  • Feeding a Hungry Planet
  • Health Systems for a Global Village
  • Greening a Blue Planet

In 2018, 32 finalists were selected to pitch, and have continued to advance their companies. For example, Sugar Logix has added staff and went on to receive the Nikkei pitch award at AG/SUM Agritech summit in Tokyo.
