Competition Brief

Coast Capital Savings Venture Prize recognizes entrepreneurial excellence from the Simon Fraser University community.

Judged by a panel of industry experts, winning 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 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.
