Join us for a one-a-kind event to empower Ottawa’s top creative, diverse and entrepreneurial talent.
Hosted in 25 cities across 5 continents, and culminating in a final competition and 3-day immersive educational boot camp in Silicon Valley, SoGal Foundation is excited to host the largest global startup pitch opportunity for women and diverse entrepreneurs worldwide. At each regional competition, creatives/entrepreneurs will be judged by an all-star panel of judges who are committed to investing in early-stage ideas and founders.
Finalists selected from each regional round will win a slot in our final global competition for guaranteed face-time with top venture capitalists in Silicon Valley, curated educational programming, unparalleled 1:1 mentorship, press exposure, and a chance to win investment capital. Over half a million (and counting) investment dollars have already been allocated to the final competition from our friends at SoGal Ventures and Draper University.
Judges: Nolan Beanlands, Karla Briones, Caterina Rizzi & Jamaal Rogers
