Welcome to Pythons’ Pit
Pythons’ Pit provides an avenue for creative, entrepreneurial students of Halton, Hamilton and Peel Regions to pitch their business concepts and product ideas in front of a live audience and a panel of real business moguls from the community for the chance to take home up to $3,500.
The goal of Pythons’ Pit is to foster innovation, creativity and an entrepreneurial spirit in Halton, Hamilton and Peel Regions by providing an opportunity for high school students to further develop their networking and business planning skills. Students will learn how to make a 3-minute pitch and will be given access to a network of key community influencers to help guide them in this journey. With eight entrepreneurs making the initial cut, only three will pitch to the Pythons in the live event taking place on May 27th of 2020 at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre.
