The Centre for Business and Student Enterprise (CBaSE) hosted their Hub Startup Showcase on Wednesday night, featuring a high-pressure pitch competition for student entrepreneurs in their Hub Incubator Program to win cash for their business.
Three prizes were up for grabs, including the: Warren & Deborah Jestin Impact Award, Executive’s Choice Award, and People’s Choice Award.
Congratulations to Laura Frielingsdorf and Kiran Bains, consultants with the Seed Guelph on the Upcycle Kitchen project, on winning the Warren and Deborah Jestin Award, valued at $500.
Congratulations to Austin Bruch and Luke Climenhage, co-founders of A9 Lighting, on taking home the Executive’s Choice Award, valued at $500.
Each team also had the chance to win the People’s Choice Award, chosen by attendees as they watched the pitch competition. This award came with a prize valued at $585, coming from the event’s ticket sales. Congratulations to Laura Frielingsdorf and Kiran Bains on also receiving this award.
The competition included four other businesses from the Hub’s Cohort 11. Congratulations to all of the CBaSE Hub Incubator entrepreneurs for their incredible work this semester!
