Friday, February 24, 2017 – Sudbury – Collège Boréal

Yesterday, at its Sudbury campus, Collège Boréal hosted its third annual entrepreneurship contest La prochaine innovation, c’est la mienne! (The Next Big Innovation is Mine).

Each year, Boréal students are invited to pitch a business concept or prototype that may become the next big thing to a panel of local business partners and business development representatives. As part of the experience, students receive feedback that may help them transform their ideas into a reality. They also have the chance to win great prizes, including the opportunity to participate at the May 15-16 OCE Discovery event in Toronto.


“Collège Boréal is proud to contribute to foster the development of an entrepreneurial spirit among students. Through this annual contest, participants get to test their innovativeness, receive expert advice, and gain networking experience. Congratulations to all who participated!”

Daniel Giroux, President, Collège Boréal
