Digifest 2019: IT’S A START Pitch Competition


Win $5K for your Startup!

One of Toronto’s leading pitch competitions is back! The Digital Media and Gaming Incubator at George Brown College is proud to present the 2019 IT’S A START Pitch Competition.

Next April, ten startups will be selected to pitch their ideas in front of a live audience and judges at Digifest 2019. All startups have the opportunity to pitch their business idea, convince the judges of its value, and impress the crowd in 5 minutes for the chance to win cash, space along with an opportunity to attend Beijing’s Overseas Talent Entrepreneurship Conference (OTEC).

If you have a smart sustainable future idea, please submit an application. Everyone from creative professionals, budding entrepreneurs, new startups, students or recent graduates are invited to submit. Whether your business is a Mobile App, Game, VR/AR Media, Content Property, Product, Digital Design, AI Innovation, or Robotic Innovation, we would love to hear your ground breaking ideas.

New this year – Digifest is introducing a GBC Student Category for GBC Students and Alumni! You can submit your general business idea, it does not have to be a tech related business.

Applications are now being accepted online – deadline is Friday, January 25, 2019 at 5 PM. There is no fee to enter. Entries will be reviewed by the IT’S A START committee and all semi-finalists will be notified in February 2019.
