The BMO Launch Me Program is designed to help students and recent alumni prepare for success in the BMO Launch Me competition. Complete a series of skill building workshops to prepare your business idea for launch, and submit your work for a chance to win funds. The first round of the competition is a business plan submission. Chosen finalists will move on to the finals with a five minute pitch to a panel of judges.
In total, students and alumni have the opportunity to win a portion of $135,000 in funding for their startups! The funds will be distributed in three categories:

The Longo CfE was proud to host this wonderful event that allowed finalists to compete for a combined total of $135,000 in cash prizes. The night was filled with live music, good eats and inspirational students and new grads presenting their innovative new ideas!

If you’re doing this, please ensure that the YouTube link you provide is not set to private, otherwise we will not be able to review it.
