The global COMET Competition that spanned sixteen regions and five continents takes center stage in Toronto, Ontario, for its Canadian finals. The COMET Competition attracts ISVs with less than 10 million USD in revenue in the last 12 months of operation. After three months of combing through well over 100 applications from ISVs across the country, the winners will be selected over a full-day live event at the Marriott International City Centre Hotel on December 11, 2019. This event is open to anyone interested in learning more and supporting their fellow start-ups.
Along with the 15 finalists, key guests at this event will include:
The judging panel consists of industry experts from Ingram Micro, Microsoft Canada, Microsoft for Startup, Ryerson DMZ, CTO Boost, The Winning Practice and MaRS Discovery District.
The Canadian finals will allow each company to showcase their innovative product or service, with one outstanding ISV walking away with 100,000 USD in go-to-market (GTM) funding. The three runners-up will receive 50,000 USD each in GTM funding. And there’s more – a whole lot more! The Canadian winner will attend the Ingram Micro Cloud Summit in Miami, FL, May 12-14, 2020, to vie for the 1 million USD cash top prize! To top that off, Ingram Micro Cloud will give winners a chance to be part of their cloud ecosystem that encompasses 48,000+ MSPs, VARs, telcos, hosters, system integrators and enterprise-level resellers in 50 global markets
