Adjudicators

The Startup Canada Awards are adjudicated by some of Canada’s leading entrepreneurs and public figures. The internal Preliminary Adjudication Committee shortlists candidates. Regional and National Adjudication Committees play a vital role in reviewing and evaluating shortlisted submissions and determining the results of the Awards.
