The last call has been issued for entries to the Francophone Ignition Contest.
The contest, which is run by RDÉE Prince Edward Island, is aimed at Francophone people who have an idea for a new business and existing entrepreneurs who want to launch a new product or service or expand to introduce a new production line. The planned product or service must have the potential to be exported to other provinces or countries.
The business must be based on the Island and at least one of its owners must be able to do business in French and present their project in that language during the competition.
The deadline to submit applications is Jan. 18 at midnight.
The winner of the competition will receive a $25,000 cash prize from Innovation P.E.I. to help them get their business project off the ground.
Also, the winner will receive free one-year memberships to the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of P.E.I. and to the Greater Summerside and Greater Charlottetown Chambers of Commerce.
Finally, the individual will receive free business courses from the Collège de l'Île and a pair of tickets to attend the 2020 Entrepreneurs' Gala.
