National Investment Pitch Competition

Meet our Winners!

The purpose of the Hong Kong – Canada Investment Pitch Competition is to provide students enrolled in post-secondary business programs across Canada with a tangible opportunity to showcase their business idea to a panel of professionals.

We choose the "best of the best" submissions from across the country to compete in our competition, a flagship event at our 2017 HKCBA National Conference.

Qualifying teams won flights, accommodation and registration for two to attend the 2017 HKCBA National Conference at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver (June 1-3, 2017) and pitch their business idea at the Conference on June 2, 2017 in front of a panel of seasoned judges and live audience.

Teams have been working on a business idea that connects Canada to Hong Kong or leverages the "Canada - Hong Kong" advantage to conduct business between Canada and other parts of Asia, and are in the running for prizes valued at $39,000 including:

  • Cash prizes and seed money to put towards their business idea
  • Consulting services to help get their business from concept to market
