Problem Pitch Competition

March 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Be part of the first-ever Problem Pitch Competition by watching UWaterloo students pitch important industry problems they have identified. You’ll even get to have your say, with the audience deciding which team wins the People’s Choice Award!

The winning team’s 5-minute pitch will demonstrate the best understanding of an important industry problem, as shown by their research of the problem’s history, scope, and impact. The prizes for the winning teams are to be used to fund R&D for a venture that solves the problem identified.

The 1st place team wins $4,000
The 2nd place team wins $1,000

The People’s Choice team will win a Kobo Aura e-reader for every member on the team.

FREE PIZZA will be served for attendees!
