Did someone say $100,000? Yeah, we did.
Twenty-five companies led by women participated in the Fierce Founders Bootcamp. They got a crash course in customer validation, HR and leadership, creating financials, building sales funnels and marketing, but we didn’t stop there.
They received hands-on mentorship from experienced entrepreneurs and experts as they built out their business models and worked toward refining their product offerings.
It's time to put all that training to the test and put them in the spotlight.
Join us on February 26 to cheer on the top eight companies as they compete for a $100,000 grand prize in the final pitch competition.
How's that for fierce?

Construction in the Region
As you may know, there is some construction happening in Downtown Kitchener, so you may hit some traffic getting here. Please check the latest updates from the City of Kitchener to help plan your best route.
Getting to Communitech
The parking lot at 151 Charles Street West, Kitchener, is limited and is a shared visitors lot for all tenants in the Tannery building. It is for short term use only, up to two hours. For longer visits, or if the lot is full, you can park at one of the City of Kitchener lots. Check out this map to find out how to get downtown and where to park. Or, skip the need to park altogether. Use the GRT EasyGo trip planner to find your best route on the ION light rail or bus services, which conveniently makes regular stops nearby.
