The University of Manitoba is welcoming more than 150 young entrepreneurs from across the province to its campus today.
The students are showing off their best business ideas at the Manitoba High School Investment Competition.
Hosted by the Stu Clark Centre for Entrepreneurship at the Asper School of Business, the competition encourages students to develop original ideas for projects and services in any industry, which they can market while in school or after they graduate.
A total of 24 teams will compete for over $20,000 in scholarships and prizes. The day will be divided into four events: a trade show, an idea pitch competition, a logo competition, and a business plan competition.
Students will be judged by a group of 30, including business leaders, university professors and local entrepreneurs.
Competition results will be posted the week following the competition on the Stu Clark Centre for Entrepreneurship website.
