Event description

Description

Come cheer on and support the Y2 participants as they do their final presentations to a panel of judges!

What happens when bright, motivated and creative teens meet workshops about design thinking, building investor pitches, and effective public speaking - and then they meet experienced entrepreneurs? Awesome things happen!

Come to the Y2 finals to watch each team present their business idea - pressure tested, with the support of a coach - to a panel of judges who are entrepreneurs and angel investors.

To give you an idea of what's happened before, each Y2 conference has had 10 or so teams present compelling pitches, all of which would compare favourably against pitches from any team of adults. 6 teams have gone on to dine with and learn from senior technology leaders and serial entrepreneurs. And several teams have gone on to earn seed money (from the Ontario Centres of Excellence's "Make Your Pitch" competition, Summer Company, and Ideal Labs' "Business Plan Competition").

For details, visit the Y2 Entrepreneurship Labs' website or watch videos of all final presentations on YouTube.

Space is limited - seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis. If tickets are sold out, please send us an email to be added to the waiting list.

Come and be inspired. Come to the Y2 finals.
