Six pitches. One prize. A spring day in Edmonton.

On Wednesday night, six Albertan entrepreneur teams pitched their business ideas to a panel of expert judges in front of a crowd full of supporters. They had a mission: to convince the judges their idea had the most merit, for a chance to win a $1000 cash prize to fund their business.

Their secondary mission was to share their story with the audience, which was full of potential future customers.

House of Sew pitched their idea of teaching people to sew and make their own clothes. Orbis Sports wants to help people get fit, play and have fun—with the help of giant bubble suits.

Biota Balance has developed yogurt for dogs, which helps provide healthy probiotics for our pets. Host Julian Faid sampled one on stage and gave the taste a review of “aggressive.”IMG_0193.JPG

Calgary Heritage Roasting Company provides the tools for Albertans to roast their own coffee. Karma Concerts is a non-profit that puts on concerts for children and raises money for children’s charities at the same time.

Fitset Pass provides one pass to lots of fitness studios, so you don’t have to buy several passes and can try many different options.

In the end, it was Calgary Heritage Roasting Company that won the judges’ favour.
