They include Shelena Marsh, Bo Simango, Francis Vala, Dan McCann, and Geoffrey Ching. Each of the finalists have put in a lot of hard work to get to this point. They come from a variety of backgrounds and places across Canada; as far away as Newfoundland to locally here in Metro Vancouver. Each finalist is here today to pitch their BIG idea before our panel of esteemed judges. The event begins at 6:30 pm and there is still time for you to register to come see what BIG ideas made it to the top five list.
