Coast Capital Savings Venture Prize 2021

Apply: January 15 – February 15

The Venture Prize competition, organized by Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection, celebrates innovative ideas and entrepreneurial pursuits from the Simon Fraser University community.

Competitors are given the opportunity to practice venture ideation, business plan writing, and presenting pitches. They’ll receive support in dedicated workshops and coaching sessions from Venture Connection’s mentors prior to the finals in April.

The competition is open to early-stage business ventures founded by SFU students from undergraduate, graduate and professional programs (e.g MBA), as well as by staff, faculty, and recent alumni.

Competitors are judged by a panel of industry experts on the quality of their business concept, current progress and future plans, founder track record and presentation skills.

  • 10 years of the Venture Prize competition
  • $75K in cash and prizes awarded to winners in 2020

Going online: SFU’s spring semester classes are taking place online. In light of this, the Venture Prize competition will be an entirely virtual experience in 2021.
