The Cube partners with Lambton Mall for Young Entrepreneurs Pitch Competition


April 6, 2017

SARNIA, April 6, 2017 – Sarnia’s most talented youth will put their best ideas forward in a high-stakes pitch competition taking place at the Lambton Mall this weekend.

On Saturday, April 8, Lambton College’s entrepreneurial incubator, The Cube, is hosting a Young Entrepreneurs Pitch Competition from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Lambton Mall food court. The event will feature five finalists from the Sarnia-Lambton business community.

The grand prize winner will be awarded six months of free rent at a cart in Lambton Mall, as well as startup funding for their business idea. Cash prizes totaling up to $15,000 will also be granted, thanks to a generous donation from the provincial government.

“We are thrilled to be able to partner with Lambton College in this capacity and to provide a young local entrepreneur with a business opportunity within our shopping centre,” says Alexandra Kohut, Marketing Director, Lambton Mall.

Special guest speakers include some of Sarnia’s most forward-thinking business leaders, including Anja Christensen, co-owner of Esby & Soph, and Jennifer Crawford, owner of Caryl Baker Visage.

Pitches will take place in front of a public audience and the first 50 spectators will receive a promotional bag, and the opportunity to vote for their favourite pitches.

The event will conclude with a networking opportunity for all competitors, judges and audience members to mingle and share their business insight.

“Young people in Sarnia are doing amazing things,” says Jasmyn Newton, Operations Coordinator, The Cube, Lambton College. “This is the community’s chance to directly support the initiatives that are happening right here in Sarnia-Lambton, and the people behind those big ideas.”

Attendance is free, with optional donations going to St. Clair Child & Youth Services, Sarnia’s primary source of services related to youth mental health.
