Haltech hosted our Fall Hi5 Pitch Competition on November 29th which brought in over 120 registered guests to see five of Haltech’s high-potential clients represent their businesses to a judging panel of technology executives and industry professionals.
“This event brings together the ecosystem and showcases local talent in the region – we are proud to help recognize these companies for their innovative thinking,” says Shann McGrail, Executive Director of Haltech and event Master of Ceremonies.
The competition took place at The Marquee at Sheridan College, Oakville Campus, where the startups were able to set up booths and meet with the public before taking the stage to pitch their businesses. Participating teams IT Curate, Better Money Choices, Enertics, Ergotech Solutions (Leen) and House of Anesi dazzled the crowd with their new innovations and technologies.
Thank you to all the companies that took part in this event and congratulations to our winners of the night; IT Curate won people’s choice, and House of Anesi came in first place for the Hi5 Pitch Competition.
