Canada’s comeback challenge

Canada’s comeback needs you

October 9, 2020 — 

Canada’s Comeback needs you.

The Business + Higher Education Routable (BEHR) is looking towards Canada’s COVID-19 recovery and is looking for teams of students like yourself to tackle more than 75 challenges currently facing industries and the country. Your teams will connect with mentors and employers, building your network, to find solutions to these challenges.

In an entirely online format, the Canada Comeback challenge will provide you with a resumé building experience as you find solutions for employers in Canada’ public, private and non-profit sectors. Some will also have an opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges.

To reduce financial barriers to those who wish to participate, all students will have access to up to $250.00 in funding during the first round. Teams who move onto round two will have access to up to $4000.00 in funding to prepare a pitch and develop their solution further. There are criteria for eligible expenses, to be sure to review those on the Canada Comeback Challenge website.

Registration has been extended to October 18. Once you have registered, build your team, and then select a challenge you want to solve!

For more information and to register visit the Canada Comeback Challenge website.
