Baja carThe Lancers’ Lair invites budding entrepreneurs to pitch their business ideas to a panel of experts.

Business idea pitch session to offer cash prizes

Undergraduates from any discipline with a great idea for a business start-up can run their proposals past local professionals in a session March 24 as part of the UWill Discover research conference.

Sponsored by the Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre (EPICentre) the Lancers’ Lair is modelled on the television program Dragons’ Den. Entrepreneurial students submit proposals on their ideas. Those accepted will work with the Centre for Teaching and Learning to create three-minute video pitches and posters showcasing their ideas.

In the Lancers’ Lair, each pitch will be reviewed by a panel of judges, as well as a live audience. First prize is $250 plus a trip to the Ontario Centres of Excellence Discovery conference in Toronto, April 27 and 28.
