The Social Enterprise Start-up Weekend

March 9 @ 6:00 pm - March 11 @ 5:00 pm

 From March 9-11, ncTakeOff’s Start-Up Weekend will give students, from any program, the opportunity to create a social enterprise for the Niagara region and pitch their idea to a panel of judges.

This three-part series encourages ncTakeOff entrepreneurs to spark ideas and set them ablaze. The first pitch competition will take place between March 9-11 2018. This Start-up Weekend will allow Niagara College students to pitch their social enterprise ideas for the Niagara region. On Friday and Saturday, entrepreneurial individuals will meet, form teams, and develop ideas into a business model while being supported by several mentors. By Sunday, teams are ready to pitch in front of a panel of industry professionals.

The winner of this weekend will receive social enterprise starter prize package (including $1000 cash) and continue on to Pitch Perfect, the second stage of the pitch series where they will have the chance to win additional prizes.
