Own it. Win it.
Bring your idea to life, gain incredible exposure and vie for prizes that will give your business an incredible leg up.
If you’re an emerging entrepreneur or the owner of a new business, Enterprize Challenge is your chance to learn from some of the best as you hone your pitch, polish your business plan and prepare for an exciting launch.
During the Enterprize Challenge ‘business bootcamp,’ you’ll participate in weeks of workshops and one-to-one mentoring to help make your pitch stand out. The challenge culminates in a night of live pitches before volunteer judges in a Dragon’s Den-style competition. You could take home start-up capital plus thousands of dollars in prize packages—and gain valuable skills and insight into owning and operating a business everyone knows and loves.
How the Enterprize Challenge Works
Arm yourself with the tools you need to deliver your best pitch to our volunteer judges. This series of 2–3-hour evening workshops begins within the first few weeks of the Enterprize Challenge. This step includes the creation of a Business Model Canvas
You and your team are assigned a mentor to help prepare your presentation and coach you throughout the competition. Mentors are members of the North Okanagan business community who operate a business or support a business.
