Tuesday, September 15
Join us for BoostR Stage, our live pitch event, where BoostRs (YOU!) get to fund local Alberta entrepreneurs.
Imagine entrepreneurs pitching on a stage to a room full of nearly 200 people. The fun part is that YOU are one of those people and YOU get to decide who gets the funding. As an attendee, you'll receive a $20 voucher to boost a business… THAT NIGHT!
Excited? We are too. Which is why we invite you – the influencer, innovator, community builder, entrepreneur, philanthropist – to join us for the first-ever Edmonton BoostR Stage event.
Come to network and fund your fellow Albertans who are working hard to launch and/or grow their business, shape our local community and make an impact in Alberta.
The evening will include:
- 5 pitches from entrepreneurs running an Alberta BoostR crowdfunding campaign
- 4 judges who will give candid feedback to the entrepreneurs pitching
- A crowd of nearly 200 people, all of whom have a $20 voucher to boost a business – that night!
- A libation on us
- Networking with some of the biggest and brightest in Alberta
- Appetizers – don't worry, we have your stomach growls covered
Rewards based Crowdfunding: the practice of funding a project or venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people ("crowd") in exchange for a reward that can come in the form of a product, service or fun/unique experience.

How are the entrepreneurs who pitch on the BoostR Stage selected?
Entrepreneurs who pitch on the BoostR Stage are selected based on the performance of their Alberta BoostR crowdfunding campaigns.
How does the $20 boost work?
Upon arriving, every attendee of the BoostR Stage live pitch competition will receive a $20 promo code that they can use that night to fund a business that has an active Alberta BoostR crowdfunding campaign. Boosting a business is simple – you create a BoostR log-in (name and email address) and then you select the business you want to boost with the $20 (you can boost more than $20 if you like, in which case you would cover the funds above $20 with your credit card). There will be a team of volunteers circulating the room with iPads to help you boost but you can also do it from your phone. If the business you've boosted is successful in meeting its crowdfunding goal, the funds you boosted will be received by the entrepreneur. Most $20 boosts will also come with a reward for you that you'll receive if the campaign is successful (bonus!)
