Innovation Contest for Young Entrepreneurs!

On March 5, we launched the 2012 BDC Young Entrepreneur Award contest with a bold new format. We are inviting Canadian entrepreneurs, aged 18 to 35, to apply and compete for our $100,000 BDC Grand Prize for Innovation.

Young business owners have until April 8, 2012 to apply and submit a short video, presenting an innovative project to make their business more successful. Eleven finalists will be selected — one for each province and one for the combined territories (Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut) — and then Canadians will vote to select the winner of the $100,000 BDC Grand Prize for Innovation.

Are you a young entrepreneur with an idea for an innovative project or do you know someone who might be interested? Apply today or encourage someone to apply!
