Coast Capital Savings Venture Prize 2017
The Coast Capital Savings Venture Prize competition recognizes entrepreneurial excellence at Simon Fraser University. Judged by a panel of external industry experts, winning Coast Capital Savings Venture Prize teams are selected based upon the quality of their business concept, current progress and future plans, as well as presentation skills. Business ventures of any level, from idea to operating companies, involving students from undergraduate, graduate and professional programs (e.g MBA), staff, faculty, and recent alumni are invited* to compete.
In 2014, the Venture Idea Prize was created to recognize the achievements of earlier-stage companies who are not yet ready for progression to the final round of the Coast Capital Savings Venture Prize competition. This award emphasizes the potential of ventures based on their vision and execution plan for developing their idea.
Winners of both awards will be announced at the awards ceremony and reception on Wednesday, February 15, 2017. The Reception will also include presentations from a keynote speaker and networking opportunities with Venture Connection clients, affiliates and industry representatives.
