PITCH US YOUR IDEA, WE’LL KEEP IT REAL.

ONE-NIGHT WORKSHOP, EVERY TWO MONTHS

It’s nice to have your friends and family say, “Wow, that’s such a good idea,” but are you in need of real constructive criticism before you take the plunge? Come and pitch us your innovative idea, and we’ll help you ask the right questions. We won’t be as obliging as your mother, but in the span of 30 minutes you’ll get valuable comments and advice from seasoned entrepreneurs. 

Next Sprint: 21 May 2024 – 4 to 6 p.m.

Guest entrepreneur: Olivier Roy, Export Outaouais

What is it?

  • A 30-minute personal online meeting with the Cilex team and one guest entrepreneur (different each workshop).

  • The opportunity to quickly put your idea to the test with seasoned entrepreneurs and obtain constructive feedback.

  • The guarantee that your idea will not be disclosed without your written permission.

Who is it for?

All aspiring entrepreneurs who have an innovative idea and wish to put it to the test. 

  • If you’re already in the validation phase, we recommend the Bootcamp program. 

  • If you’ve already validated your project and you’re in the pre-market or market entry phase, the Aventure program would be a better fit.

What’s my commitment?

NOTHING except showing up at the scheduled meeting!

You can take part in as many sprints as you want, as long as you’re in the idea phase.

 

How does it work?

  1. You register for free by filling up the registration form.

  2. We email you back to schedule a meeting and give you the access link.

  3. You show up at the appointed time.

  4. You make the most out of your 30-minute meeting (pitch and feedback).

  5. You take this input back with you and keep thinking about your idea.

When is it?

Every two months. Dates are announced through social media and on this page.

Where is it?

At home, in front of your computer, with the trendiest app of the moment: Zoom!
