The four semifinalists for this year's $100,000 Small Business Challenge Contest have been chosen.
A record number of more than 1,200 companies from across the country entered. From that list, six judges – Jim Senko of Telus Corp., consultant Evan Carmichael, Chris Griffiths of Fine Tune Consulting, and Sean Stanleigh, Steve Tustin and Terry Brodie from The Globe and Mail – selected four semi-finalists.
The winner of the $100,000 grant will be announced in September, 2012.
