Entrepreneurs get ready — the 2014 Funding Roadshow’s travelling to a city near you! Over the next few weeks, this touring event will reach ten major cities, offering the same great opportunity to business owners across Canada. Having visited Toronto and Guelph last week, the Roadshow stopped in Ottawa today and will later depart for Halifax. Although only three cities in, this competition’s already well underway.

During the Roadshow, entrepreneurs may pitch their innovative products to an accomplished advisory panel. In return, participating businesses receive feedback, speak with industry experts, and compete for various prizes. Said prizes include round-trip airfare to San Francisco and the chance to pitch to Californian VCs. Swing by the 2014 Funding Roadshow’s homepage to check your business’ eligibility or to view the full schedule of events.
