Halifax-based Tribe Network will host a pitch competition, dubbed Innovate and Elevate, for Black founders from across Atlantic Canada on May 23.

Shortlisted entrepreneurs will deliver three-minute pitches with the help of six-slide pitch decks, and will receive feedback on their businesses and pitching skills. The winner will also receive a $600 Visa gift card.

“Designed for entrepreneurs at different stages of their journey, this challenge is split into two streams: ‘Start’ for those with new ventures and ‘Build’ for businesses at the growth stage,” says Tribe.

“This event is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to present their innovations to a broad audience, receive expert feedback, and undergo personalized pitch coaching—and you’ll be able to do so, virtually, from wherever you are most comfortable.”

The deadline to apply is May 5, and finalists will be announced May 10. You can learn more here.
