The Atlantic Venture Forum, the annual conference for Atlantic Canadian startups, is looking for companies to pitch at the event in Halifax in June.

The AVF, which will be held at the city's Convention Centre on June 5 and 6, aims to attract investors and influencers from outside the region, offering founders an opportunity to meet funders without leaving the East Coast. 

The AVF’s industry advisory board, which decides which startups present in person, is focusing on companies in the following streams: 

  • Climate Tech & Sustainability
  • Health Technology & Life Sciences
  • Enterprise Solutions
  • Ag & Food Tech
  • Energy Transition
  • Fintech

The advisory board will select “presenting companies” to pitch in person at the event. Most of the remaining applicants will be offered the opportunity to join the "company showcase", which means they can submit a video pitch to be showcased in the event app. Both presenting companies and those in the company showcase will receive a free delegate pass for the two-day event.

The deadline to enter is tomorrow, Friday, April 19. You can enter and find more information and application details here.
