FastStart SHIFT is Durham College’s Social Entrepreneurship/Social Innovation stream for startups looking to launch social enterprises. It supports DC students and the Durham community, to create a better, more sustainable world through positive social, environmental and economic business impact.

In partnership with Ontario Power Generation (OPG), FastStart SHIFT proudly presents the ‘Cleantech Pitch Contest’. This is a charitable event, we’ve organized in support of the EnactusDC organization (DC’s social entrepreneurship team) and their amazing local project work. Only current Durham College students are eligible to compete for the $2,000 cash prize.

On Thursday, December 5th @ 5:00pm, the innovative ideas will be pitched at Durham College, in the innovative Global Classroom space at the Centre for Collaborative Education. Refreshments will be provided, and an opportunity to network will follow the event! The overall best CleanTech business idea will take home the grand prize!

We are thrilled to have an amazing judging panel for the night, consisting of Jason Wight – OPG’s Director of Engineering (X-Lab), Ellen Stitt – Founder & Director at Rain It In, and Brent Lessard – Founder & CEO of rLoop X Limited.
