Heather Jeffery takes on other local businesses in a pitchfest competition in Ottawa. After a rocky start, Heather redeems herself by speaking from the heart and wins the crowd over with passion, dedication and initiative!
What is a Pitchfest? A pitchfest is where entrepreneurs present in front of a panel (e.g., Dragons’ Den) to potentially win resources that will aid their business.
Eligibility Applicants must: – Have been in business less than five (5) years; – Have generated less than $500,000 in revenue since inception; – Be headquartered within 100 km of the National Capital Region.
Participants will have five (5) minutes to explain their vision and business concept to ‘win-over’ the crowd. Live voting will be done by our entrepreneur peers in attendance @eSAX, so this will also be a great opportunity to receive considerable exposure in front of hundreds of other business and community leaders.
