Show Description
One hundred startups mastered the art of the pitch at the top of one of the world's most impressive buildings: Toronto's CN Tower. The inaugural event, aptly named The Elevator World Tour, is part of the International Startup Festival, a conference held in Montreal in July. Six startups were named finalists, but Mejuri, a Toronto-based fine jewellery startup that uses crowdsourcing to choose designs and create unique pieces, was the winner. The team will be flown to Montreal for the festival and to compete against winners from other cities.
