Tuesday, August 24, 2021

Attention Algoma district entrepreneurs! Applications for this year’s Bridges to Better Business Pitch Competition are open and we want to hear your business ideas. The contest is open to both new and existing businesses. 
 
Bridges to Better Business, hosted by the Millworks – Centre for Entrepreneurship, is an annual forum that unites local professionals for a session of learning and networking. After a successful event in 2020, the Pitch Competition is back. If you or someone you know is an entrepreneur in the Algoma district looking to start or grow a business, we invite you to apply.

Last year’s winner, BookBuds, took home a grand prize valued at $17,000, followed by the second-place price valued at $7,000, which went to Kapptive Studios. The deadline to submit an application is Sunday, August 29 at 11:59 p.m. For more information and to apply, visit our website.
 
The organizing partners for Bridges to Better Business 2021 are Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), Community Development Corporation of Sault Ste. Marie & Area, Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre, and Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce.
