August 16th, 2018 marks a bittersweet moment for us at SkyCanvas games. Our time in UOIT ‘s Brilliant incubator has come to an end. It feels like the summer just blew by. I guess that’s just what happens when you’re having fun, or you’re extremely busy, or both; yes both :’)
After an exciting summer learning and improving our pitching skills, SkyCanvas Games was able to close out on a high note by placing first in our Brilliant Incubator pitch finale! (Twitter link) Winning a grand prize of $1,000.
We would like to thank our Brilliant mentors, guests speakers, firefly funders, and esteemed guests for making this possible. It was an honour to showcase all of our progress and hard work. A special thanks to our three judges for volunteering their time.
- Dr, Steven Murphy, Vice-Chancellor and President – the University of Ontario Institute of Technology
- Nora Bieberstein -Senior Management, Innovation Partnerships and Engagement – Royal Bank of Canada
- Jennifer Osborne – President and CEO, Search Engine People
The finale event was a day to celebrate the growth of this year’s start-ups as well as the success and future of UOIT’s Brilliant incubator program. It was an amazing night and a great chance for us to chat with the organizers, firefly donors, faculty, and supporters all in one room.
Although the above competition was a private event, we will be participating in another public pitch competition held by Brilliant on September 24th. If you would like to attend, please reach out to us.
Thanks for reading!
