On March 5, the Business Development Bank of Canada launched the 2012 BDC Young Entrepreneur Award contest with a bold new format. We are inviting Canadian entrepreneurs, aged 18 to 35, to apply and compete for our $100,000 BDC Grand Prize for Innovation.
Young business owners have until April 8, 2012 to apply and submit a short video presenting an innovative project that will grow and improve their business. Eleven finalists will be selected- one from each province and one from the combined territories (Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut). Once finalists have been selected, Canadians will vote for the winner of the $100,000 BDC Grand Prize for Innovation.
