WRSBC clients receive an additional $30,000 in pitch competition

 

 

Waterloo Region is continuing to prove that it is the home of opportunity and collaboration for young startups.. We’re excited to share the latest success stories of three young entrepreneurs out of the Waterloo Region Small Business Centre (WRSBC) who were able to navigate and capitalize on the startup ecosystem in our region.

 

WRSBC clients Josh and Amedeus of Code Connect received $25,000 in the Velocity Fund finals last Thursday! The startup which develops software to make coding easier to understand on large projects, was able to leverage the award by first graduating from Ontario’s youth entrepreneurship program, Starter Company, which granted them $5,000, professional mentorship and business training. The program is run by the Waterloo Region Small Business Centre in Kitchener City Hall. Watch their winning pitch here.

 

Another participant of the WRSBC Summer Company Program, Yashin Shah, also received the $5,000 award in the Velocity Fund Finals by pitching his startup ShockLock, the safety tool for the professional mechanic.

 

We are looking forward to more success stories in 2015!
