Energy Sector Startups Compete for $50K Prize

Are you an entrepreneur with an idea that will impact the energy industry? Are you a seed-stage company in the energy sector?

The Energy New Venture Competition offers a chance to ignite your idea or venture. Open to all seed-stage companies, budding entrepreneurs, researchers and students, the competition is a platform for advancing emerging energy technology companies and concepts.

The competition is divided into two separate streams to engage even the earliest stage entrepreneur. The Concept Stream allows individuals or teams to pitch their idea or concept for an energy technology startup and turn it into reality. The Venture Stream allows teams or individuals to pitch their energy technology startup company and take it to the next level.

Leading up to the competition, the Energy New Venture Competition will help finalists hone their business plans and perfect their pitches with workshops and coaching from experts in entrepreneurship, innovation, company creation and investment development.

While the competition is being held in Calgary, applications will be accepted from across the country as well as internationally.

Submit your application online by September 24. Winners will share in over $50,000 in cash and in-kind prizes.
