The Queen’s Entrepreneurs’ Competition (QEC)

January 16, 2020 - January 19, 2020

The Queen’s Entrepreneurs’ Competition is Canada’s most prestigious undergraduate startup competition.

We have been trailblazing and innovating in Canada and around the world for
32 years.

Who We Are

Each year we receive numerous business plan submissions from around the globe, and the top 15 teams are selected and invited to Toronto to pitch their business plans to a panel of Canadian business leaders. There are over $75,000 in prizes awarded throughout the final weekend for the top pitching entrepreneurs. The QEC final weekend never fails to foster a vibrant exchange of ideas, unparalleled innovation, and the start of new professional and personal connections.

More Than Money

While the prizes are a key piece in helping entrepreneurs start their business, the QEC offers so much more than monetary awards for competitors, judges, and other attendees. The QEC is a forum – a place where talented young entrepreneurs from all over the world gather. They are here to share ideas, develop their networks, and learn from our community of professors, entrepreneurs, and advisors.
