DMZ Women Founders Pitch Competition

September 20, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Eight founders. Four months.

The DMZ wants you to see how far the top eight finalists from the DMZ Women Founders Accelerator Program have come.

Over the past four months, the eight finalists have accelerated their growth and taken key learnings from the program that have helped them reach pivotal milestones in their business. Our startups have also hired new talent, acquired new customers and achieved product market fit.

On September 20, the finalists will pitch to a judging panel of Canada’s leading innovation experts, where cash prizes of $50,000 for first place, $25,000 for second place, and $15,000 for third place will be awarded! They’ll be accompanied by a room filled with more than 200 investors, entrepreneurs, corporate leaders and customers.

Alongside the pitch competition, you’ll also have the chance to hear from Marie Chevrier, Founder of Sampler, at an exclusive fireside chat on becoming a seven figure entrepreneur.
