Sudbury’s Northern Centre for Advanced Technology (NORCAT) and the Northern Ontario Angels, a regional investor network, is giving entrepreneurs the chance to present their new business ideas to a room of prospective angel investors at the inaugural Sudbury PITCH 2014 on May 1.

The deadline to apply is Friday.

The event will feature presentations to angel investors, community leaders and judges, following a format similar to CBC’s Dragon’s Den show.

Audience members will be engaged to vote for the best business pitch for a People’s Choice Award. The winning pitch receives services and support valued at more than $25,000.

“We are excited to work with a variety of partners to launch Sudbury PITCH 2014 – a fun and entertaining evening focused on getting business done,” said NORCAT CEO Don Duval, himself a former tech entrepreneur.

“We are encouraging entrepreneurial startups seeking capital to strongly consider this opportunity to engage prospective angel investors that could help them achieve their goals and aspirations.”
