Hawks' Nest May 17th, 2023 at the Roxy Theatre, Owen Sound, ON.

SEDC and BCFDC are not-for-profit organizations that have partnered to bring Hawks' Nest for 2023. This event is a Dragons Den inspired competition where entrepreneurs from various sectors will pitch their business ideas attempting to secure financial support from local "hawk" investors.

Open to all applicants within the Grey, Bruce, Owen Sound, Minto and North Wellington area.

The Hawks' Nest is an opportunity to garner cash investments and to promote your business throughout the region.  As an entrepreneur, you will have the opportunity to pitch your business ideas in an attempt to secure financial support from local investors, (the Hawks).

Six regional entrepreneurs and one youth from our local coverage area will be chosen as finalists. Each will have the opportunity to gain investment from the Hawks, with each investor committing to a minimum $5,000 value investment in one or more competitors they see as a good fit for them. The investment is at the discretion of each Hawk.

This event supports local economic growth and provides a development opportunity for new businesses and local business expansions. It is a great way to reach out to entrepreneurs, so they bring their enthusiasm to the Hawks for consideration of their new or expanding business.

We will have Free Business Plan Training Virtual workshops leading up to the event. Each entrepreneur with a new business is required to take the business plan training. Pre-Registration is required for all attendees, to register email hawksnest@sbdc.ca
