LaunchYU, York University’s on campus entrepreneurship unit, welcomes you to celebrate its flagship event, LaunchYU Accelerator Demo Day 2020 where we will be awarding the prestigious Aird & Berlis StartupSource Market Entry Award presented by Aird & Berlis. This much coveted accelerator program had all participating ventures work tirelessly over the last 4 months, where they immersed themselves with dedicated mentors, workshops, office hours with investors and industry experts, and leadership coaching sessions. All ventures excelled in strengthening their leadership skills, business models, value propositions and pitches.

During the event, the program will showcase the top five ventures, which have been chosen by a special Selection Committee made of investors and members of the startup community. These ventures will compete and pitch for the top 3 spots to win a combined $55,000 in awards and prizes. The 1st place winner will be awarded with the prestigious Aird & Berlis StartupSource Market Entry Award. This generous award of $12,500 in cash and $12,500 in legal services is kindly donated by Toronto law firm - Aird & Berlis LLP - together with its Partner and York University Alumni, Randy Williamson. The top 3 winners will each receive cash prizes of $10,000 from York University.

Please join us as we celebrate entrepreneurship at York University, and showcase the top graduating entrepreneurs and their ventures.
