MNP, a sponsor of the 2019 RBC Fast Pitch Competition, got a glimpse into the innovative minds of our future business leaders at this year’s competition finale held on Monday, April 29, 2019. Hosted by U of C’s Haskayne School of Business, top undergraduate entrepreneurial thinkers had three minutes to pitch their new venture concepts to a panel of esteemed judges; competing for cash and in-kind prizes to further develop their ideas into true start-up ventures. This year’s winner—Team FloraGreen—made a lasting impression with all the judges, taking top prize.
The Floragreen team’s—Kristy Wong, Elyse Petanca, Joshua Kahn and Kingston Leo—idea offered an alternative to the carcinogenic and non-biodegradable product of floral foam, a staple in the floral industry for providing structure to arrangements. The product uses natural, biodegradable and reusable materials and aims to replace a single-use plastic product.
The RBC Fast Pitch Competition, one of the school’s marquee events, showcases the top teams emerging from the required Bachelor of Commerce course in Entrepreneurial Thinking (ENTI 317) at the Haskayne School of Business. MNP is in its third year of its five-year commitment as a major sponsor of the competition. As part of their prizes, the FloraGreen team also receives cash and a generous and valuable business consulting services package with access to MNP’s senior business advisors.
“This unique competition fosters and encourages entrepreneurial thinking by arming students with the tools they need to enter a business environment that’s constantly evolving,” says Trevor Winker, MNP’s Regional Managing Partner in Calgary. “It creates opportunity and an environment to explore new business ideas, get creative with limited resources, solve problems, and ultimately create their own new venture concept aimed at capturing a unique market opportunity.”
Placing second in the competition was GRIPP—Spencer Bean, Markus Agapiou, Tyler Moffatt, Allan Li and McKenzie Mantei—a bicycle storage device that allows users to safely and effortlessly store their bicycles without the need to lift them off the ground. Third prize went to Bear Necessities—Alexander Samardzic, Tyler Sawatzky, Vinh Tran, Yuxin Li and Connor Templeton—An innovative improvement on the standard bear encounter defense system.
As an entrepreneurial firm built for entrepreneurs, this sponsorship is very much aligned with MNP’s commitment to businesses and entrepreneurs—and MNP was proud to take part.
