The McGill Dobson Cup powered by National Bank (hereafter known as ‘Dobson Cup’), is McGill’s flagship startup competition that enables emerging McGill entrepreneurs to compete for over $200,000 in prize money. Dobson Cup teams will also benefit from the opportunity to present their ideas to a panel of world-class entrepreneurs and judges who will offer guidance on how to move their ideas forward. The Dobson Cup begins with the submission of two documents: an application form and a 5-page startup plan (due by mid-January), followed by rounds of pitching and judging in the Semi-Finals (mid-February) and Finals (end of March). Winners of the Dobson Cup will be announced in early April 2020.
