St. Michael’s College School is pleased to announce the third Archangel’s Den Alumni Entrepreneur Contest! On Wednesday, May 27, a group of five young and talented alumni entrepreneurs will present their pitch ideas to a panel judges with a goal of winning $10,000, $3,500, and $1,500 in prize money that would assist them in moving their business ideas forward.

Do you have a business idea, or are you a startup business looking for funding?

This year's panel of judges will select five finalists to present before a live audience at the St. Michael’s Centre for the Arts. The top three finalists will be awarded $10,000, $3,500, and $1,500 to kick start their businesses.
