May 2, 2019

The University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business has received $1M from the RBC Foundation in support of the RBC Fast Pitch Competition and three other initiatives. A release explains that the competition requires BComm students to deliver a four-minute pitch to a panel of judges, and that the pitch should include an outline of the idea, the problem it addresses, its competitive advantage, market research, a proposed solution, and next steps. “Canadian youth have the ambition and talent to give us a competitive advantage in the skills economy of the future. Preparing them for the future of work is a core part of RBC’s purpose to help clients thrive and communities prosper,” said Jeff Boyd, a Regional President of RBC Royal Bank. UCalgary (AB)
