Info sessions to introduce business competition

Cash prizes are on offer during the EPIC Blue Sky Competition, an idea-based challenge to foster innovative thinking.

Have you ever had an idea for a problem you’ve faced personally or a problem within our community? Is there a product or service you think could satisfy a need in the marketplace? The Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre (EPICentre) wants to hear about it.

Teams of two to four students from the University of Windsor or St. Clair College are eligible for a first-place award of $1,000 and a second place $500 cash prize for their two-minute videos showcasing an original idea. The deadline for submissions is March 14.

Information sessions will explain the process:

  • Monday, March 1, 1 p.m.
  • Friday, March 5, 2 p.m.
