The Stu Clark Investment Competition, Canada’s premier graduate level business competition, is going on right now at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg. The competition’s last day is March 31, 2012.
Business students from around the world are competing against the University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business, which holds a world-record number of business competition wins — no fewer than 46 since 1995.
Part of the competition involves the elevator pitch, which U of M students excel at.
Stu Clark, the competitions namesake, graduated with a B.Comm (Hons) from the University of Manitoba in 1976 and over the years has donated millions to the school to establish the Stu Clark Centre for Entrepreneurship.
This competition is part of the prestigious Venture Labs Investment Competition and is one of only 24 such competitions in the world. It is also the premier international graduate level competition held in Canada. The teams will be showcasing new technology developed by them or created at their respective universities to panels of potential investors.
