Pitch with a Twist on International Women’s Day


Posted on January 26th, 2021


Pitch with a Twist is being hosted online on March 8, 2021 as we celebrate International Women’s Day. Join us to stand in support of women entrepreneurs at a competition that promises to break down barriers and reward great ideas from diverse voices.

Pitch with a Twist showcases innovation and entrepreneurship from the University of Toronto, Sheridan College and our greater community. Focusing on early-stage ventures, we bring together innovators from a variety of sectors to pitch their businesses for cash prizes and in-kind support.

The panel of judges as well as those pitching are all women-identifying. All are invited to celebrate creativity and entrepreneurship. Learn from speakers sharing their experiences, network with great companies, and witness exciting pitches as companies compete at the hub of entrepreneurship in action. Panellists include Deanne Hupfield, Pamela Uppal and Karlena Waugh.

The deadline to apply to pitch is February 1, 2020.
Eligibility and application details are available below.

Do you have a business idea that will change the world for the better? Do you have an idea that aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals? Are you the founder or co-founder of an early-stage start-up? This pitch is for you.
