And the START Cohort 5 Demo Day winner is…

Earlier this summer, we welcomed 10 founders into our START Cohort 5. Our START program is a pre-revenue accelerator program designed to help founders go from ideation to commercialization or take their minimum viable product to the next step. 

On Sept. 9, founders pitched their startups at the START Cohort 5 Demo Day at Cultivator’s Sask Startup Summit Event to a panel of expert judges for a chance to win $10,000. A special thank you to our judges:

  • Marty Yaskowich, COO, iQmetrix
  • Elise Taylor, Director of Customer Success and Support, 7Shifts
  • Jay Rhind, Partner, Rhino Ventures.

All of the pitches were extraordinary, making for one tough decision for our judges. In the end, there could only be two winners.

Grand Prize Winner:
