Startup Global Pitch Competition

In Person Applications

New this year! Entrepreneurs are invited to participate at the Startup Global “Pop-up” Pitch Competition as part of the Startup Canada Tour, an in-person opportunity to win a cash prize of $3,000 at one of the Startup Canada Tour stops. Registration for “Wild Card” applications at our last two stops in Calgary and Brampton are open starting July 27. In-person pitchers will have two minutes to pitch verbally (no pitch deck) to a panel of judges followed by two minutes of Q&A from the judges.

We’ll be stopping in:

  • Calgary (Wild Card West): Thursday, September 28 at BMO Centre at Stampede Park – Applications open from  July 27 – September 14 (or until spaces fill up)!
  • Brampton (Wild Card East): Thursday, October 26 – Applications open from July 27 – October 12 (or until spaces fill up)!

To participate in an in-person Startup Global “Pop-up” Pitch Competition at a Tour stop near you, fill out the in-person pitch application (located in the Startup Global portal) and then you’ll receive a special promo code to register for the Tour stop you’d like to attend at

The winner from each Tour stop will win a $3,000 cash prize on the day plus a guaranteed spot in the Startup Global Top 10 Grand Finale, which will take place in Brampton, Ontario on October 26, 2023.
