|Applications now open for the Canadian Export Challenge!|
Get your pitches ready! This year, CXC is accepting applications through online video submissions. Entrepreneurs will be pitching to win $5,000 (scale-up category), $2,500 (startup category), and a chance to win up to $25,000 and up to an additional $100,000 in in-kind scaling support at the Finale in October.
The free events are open to attend for all Canadian entrepreneurs, and anyone interested in learning more about the Canadian export ecosystem.
|“Now more than ever, it’s great to see government, organizations, and corporate Canada all come together to support Canadian entrepreneurs. Exporting gives our businesses more access to customers and opportunities in the global marketplace, and can help them rebuild more quickly in the weeks and months to come. I encourage entrepreneurs and innovators across the country to apply for this year’s Canadian Export Challenge.” says Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade.|
|CXC 2020, presented in partnership with UPS, the Trade Commissioner Service and Export Development Canada, along with Mastercard and Scotiabank, and powered by Google Canada, is the first nationwide, fully-digital pitch competition for Canadian exporters. |
