Startups the stars of the show

June 16, 2014

Next Wednesday, six promising Manitoba startup companies will present to a panel of judges for the chance at $50,000 in cash and prizes in Innovate Manitoba's big Lift'Off event.

That is the grand finale in what is becoming a busy circuit of business-pitch events for startup companies seeking traction, profile and, most importantly, funding.

This week, a new entry into the growing number of opportunities for businesses to get their message in front of potential funders took place at the former NRC building on Ellice Avenue.

The Funding Roadshow, organized by a Montreal-based company called Fundica, was part of 10-city pitch-day road show in which the winner in each city gets a round trip to San Francisco to pitch to Silicon Valley venture capitalists, a cloud-infrastructure-services package valued at about $8,000 and an R & D tax-credit financing solution valued at about $4,000.
