Enterprize Challenge Final Pitch & Showcase

18 May 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Enterprize Challenge Live Finale and Showcase Presented by VantageOne Credit Union and Community Futures North Okanagan!


Over the past three months, our Enterprize Challengers have engaged in ‘business bootcamp’ through a series of workshops and one-to-one mentoring to support them in a Dragon’s Den-style competition. The seven finalists have been selected by the judges following their initial 15 minute pitch that happened earlier in the month. On May 18, the finalists will present their 5 minute pitch to a live audience in hopes of taking home start-up capital, plus thousands of dollars in prize packages from our sponsors.

Come out and support the 2023 Challengers and join us in celebrating these exciting new businesses.

What To Expect

Doors open at 5pm for a tradeshow showcasing this years participants and our sponsors. Network, interact and show our participants a warm North Okanagan welcome before the show starts!

Pitches start at 6pm and the winners will be announced before the show ends at 9pm.

First, Second, and Third place winners as well as the People’s Choice will be awarded at the event.

This is the night to celebrate small business in the North Okanagan! Join us for an event celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship in the North Okanagan! We can’t wait to see you there.
