You will be able to review their ideas and select the startup that receives the money. But first, help us raise the money. Contribute a small donation to the award for a deserving Vancouver startup and share this site with your friends. You will start to experience how a lot of people doing a little can make a difference.
Second, browse the startups and review their ideas. Bring your experience to the table. We’ve asked the entrepreneurs to introduce themselves and their startup, as well as describe what they would do with the award. Its your money, so dig into their ideas. Provide feedback. Ask questions. And let the crowd know what you think of their idea.
Finally, once the review period is closed everyone who has donated to the award votes for their favourite startup. In crowd funding, this would be the startup in which you invest. For the $5,000 Startup Challenge, this will be your vote for the winning startup. The startup with the most votes will receive the award as chosen by you, the crowd.
