Thank you to everyone who created a submission in the Resilient Business Challenge, and those who participated in the Community Support Phase. Once again, our #LoveYYC community has shown itself to be an innovative, passionate, engaged, and resourceful group.

The Challenge: Imagine winning the lottery and investing a signficant portion of those winnings into the Calgary economy. The goal is to get a maximum​ ​return​ ​on​ ​investment over the next five years, while having a positive​ ​impact​ ​on​ ​Calgary’s​ ​job​ ​opportunities and​ ​communities​.

Thanks to your feedback and support, and the work of our Expert Reviewers, we’re excited to announce the winners of the #LoveYYC Resilient Business Challenge:

  1. Best​ ​overall​ ​idea​: YYCampus by colin has won the opportunity to present this idea to Calgary Economic Development, participate in a 1 on 1 interview as part of Calgary’s new economic strategy, and a $500 Amazon gift card, as well as a ticket to Calgary Economic Development’s Report to the Community.
  2. Best​ ​new​ ​company​: GreenCycle Calgary by MattWilsonYYC now has the opportunity to present this idea to Startup Calgary and receive a Rosso Coffee gift card (winner of ATB Small Business of the Year award).
  3. Best​ ​investment​ ​in​ ​an​ ​existing​ ​company/industry​: HustleCo Workspace by stevepaolasini will meet with the team from the Calgary Chamber of Commerce and receive a Rosso Coffee gift card.

For those of you keeping score at home, we didn't have any submissions in the Acquisition Category. 

Congratulations winners, and thanks #LoveYYC community members for sharing your vision, expertise, and encouragement in the Resilient Business Challenge. We invite you to continue the conversation in our Wide Open Spaces activity.
