The RBC Fast Pitch Competition aims to foster entrepreneurial thinking by equipping students with the tools they need to enter a business environment that’s changing rapidly. It gives them an opportunity to explore new business ideas, get creative with limited resources and practice their pitching skills in front of an engaged and encouraging audience
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with our local entrepreneurial community and will hear from Bruce Leslie, Vice President of Trade and Investment Attraction at Calgary Economic Development, about the economic transformation currently underway in our city and province.
We couldn't ignite the entrepreneurial spirit of Haskayne students without the continued and unwavering support of our partners. Special thanks to RBC Royal Bank, Market Grade, McCarthy Tetrault LLP and MNP LLP in Calgary for making this a truly spectacular event and for creating a unique opportunity for our student entrepreneurs.
