Six finalists picked for Venture Challenge

  • Print

After a rigorous three-day boot camp, six Manitoba companies have been selected to pitch at Innovate Manitoba’s Venture Challenge in June to compete for up to $40,000 in prizes.

The participants will be:

  • Advolve Media – Bryce North & Kris Luinenburg,
    Epicenter AV – Chris Johnson,
    Eyewear Evolution – Sean Sylvestre,
    Joist – Justin Kathan & Brendan Sedo,
    Prairie Food Innovation – Michael Reimer,
    ScheduleAide – Dustin Refvik and
    VastCon – Anuraag Shrivastav.

Fourteen start-up Manitoba businesses registered for the bootcamp held earlier this month. They were put through the paces by Randy Thompson, Permjot Valia, and Mark Kornak, experienced entrepreneurs and business coaches.

The entrepreneurs were coached on articulating their business potential, coachability, overall pitch and presentation quality, and readiness for angel and/or venture funding.
