MRU-JMH LaunchPad Program

The JMH Venutre LaunchPad was created in 2011 to help MRU’s most entrepreneurial students pursue their passion to start their own ventures. The LaunchPad program provides grants to students as well as valuable mentorship, culminating in the annual LaunchPad Pitch Competition.

In this Dragon’s Den-style competition, students pitch their entrepreneurial venture to a panel of experienced judges and a supportive audience for their share of $60,000 in cash and services. Before the competition, students work hand-in-hand with a collective of seasoned entrepreneurs to develop their value proposition, learn how to effectively pitch their idea and learn from some of the brightest entrepreneurial minds in Calgary.

The JMH Venture LaunchPad is Mount Royal University’s signature entrepreneurship initiative and truly supports our goal of creating the most entrepreneurial minds in Canada. Funded by a generous donation from JMH&CO. of $250,000 over five years, LaunchPad has been responsible for supporting multiple Mount Royal based startups through financial assistance and mentorship opportunities. All Mount Royal students are welcome to apply to the LaunchPad program.

JMH also provides accounting services and business mentorship to winning competitors.
