CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – If you have an idea for a green or clean-tech startup business, a P.E.I. company could give you a cash prize.

Charlottetown-based company e365 is offering the prize and start-up support for the best business pitch it hears at the Atlantic Green Expo, April 21-23.

The winner will be awarded $2,500 to put towards the new venture, along with free consulting time with e365.

The three-minute pitch sessions are open to anyone and participants must agree to the following criteria:

• Be prepared to stand on a ladder and deliver their pitch

• Pitch will be directed towards a panel, but will be in public view at Atlantic Green Expo.  • Input from the audience will be encouraged, but the e365 panel will decide the winner

Pitches will be scheduled and participants will be approved and notified of their time slots

Admission to Atlantic Green Expo is free, and the event takes place at the UPEI School of Sustainable Design Engineering.
