What 5 start-ups learned from the experts

May 26, 2021

There’s no end to the things that entrepreneurs need to think about to move their business from idea to full-blown success. Luckily for these 5 companies, we brought in the experts to help them focus on what they need to do right now!

We were so pleased to present the Pitch The Experts session as part of BENEFIQ, the international event organized by our Quebec node partner, the Institute for Nutrition and Functional Food (INAF) at Laval University. It featured some of Canada’s emerging food and nutrition brands as well as an exceptional panel of experts, including:

  • Kyley Paul of Natural Sci Regulatory Consulting
  • Cindy Warnock Lightbulb Finance
  • Dan Schmitt Jigsaw Business Consulting
  • Melissa Mountain of Mountain2

As part of this opportunity, five companies were asked to develop a 5-minute pitch for their business. Next, they did a test run with the NPC team and one of the experts who provided in-depth feedback, advice and guidance to help them refine their pitch AND advance their company. Finally, they delivered their pitch in front of a live (virtual) audience, and received more direction and insights from the entire panel of experts. Watch the video to see what they learned!
