Young entrepreneurs are being encouraged to take a run at winning up to $100,000 in consulting services offered through BDC Canada’s Young Entrepreneur Award.

The challenge is open to entrepreneurs aged 18 to 35 years old. Those interested must create a one- to two-minute video outlining the turning point their business has reached “and the solution that will put it on a new trajectory toward growth.”

The proposed solution must not yet be implemented.

Judges will choose up to 11 finalists, who will be featured on the national website, where Canadians can vote for the project they think most deserves the cash boost.

The finalist with the second-highest number of votes will win $25,000 in consulting services.

The deadline to apply is noon April 2. For more information, visit www.bdcyoungentrepreneuraward.ca
