GoBiz: A Canuck Contest for Start-Ups!
Yup, you read right…this is a Canuck only contest for start-ups who have a VISA business card and you can learn more here….
From the front page is this Contest offer from VISA the sponsors —
“Get your elevator pitch ready. If you’re selected as a finalist, you’ll only have 49 storeys to convince Matthew Corrin and our judges to award you with $10,000 to help grow your small business. Entries close June 20, 2011 at 11:59:59 pm ET…”
All you need to do, is to go to the Registration page and then in 1000 characters or less (how’s that for a limit on your ‘elevator pitch’ size, eh!) list for the judges, what is your business and who are your competitors, how do you generate revenue and what’s different about your business and any relevant work experience. Not a lot really but if you have to fine tune and hone that info down to 1000 chars…you’re work is cut out for you, eh!
Yup, I know….not much time – in fact only 2 weeks left to get your entry in…but if you do win, the grand price is $10,000 CDN and you will need to pitch same in Toronto later this summer if you make the final shortlist of 5!
So good luck startups….this is a great offer and I’d NOT miss the chance to spend some time hand crafting your elevator speech to get a shot at a cool $10,000! Best of luck, you Canuck start-ups!Google
