Spark Nova Scotia Training Begins

All applicants are welcome to participate in the first four Spark Training Program modules: “Identifying and Managing the Risks in a New Business”; “Introduction to the Business Model Canvas”; “Finance: What Young Companies Need to Know”; and "Storytelling and Presenting." These modules will offer business-building skills and support to help participants accelerate the development of their businesses. The annual Spark Nova Scotia startup competition, which offers winners up to $50,000 of non-dilutive funding, will hold its training seminars online again this year and has moved the registration deadline to August 30. Entrepreneurs will still be able to join the training after the formal deadline and can apply to participate in Spark’s pitch competition until October 4. The first training session will be held August 16 -- before the deadline to register. The training will cover topics such as finance, risk management and pitching skills. Then, after the pitch competition, judges will award $375,000 in grants, divided among the competitors as they see fit. The winners will also receive a $10,000 credit for Amazon Web Services.
