RDÉE Prince Edward Island has just launched a call to all those with good business ideas to participate in the 2021 edition of its Francophone Ignition Contest, which is being held in the style of the TV shows “Shark Tank” and “Dragons’ Den”. Coordinator Julie Gallant reveals that at the end of the contest, next March, $25,000 will be invested in the project with the greatest potential for entrepreneurial success. This amount will come from Innovation PEI’s Ignition Startup Fund.


The Francophone Ignition Contest is intended for Francophone or bilingual entrepreneurs (current or potential) who want to set up a new business, launch a new product or service, or expand an existing business into a new production line.

Those interested in participating must download the application form from www.rdeeipe.net/ignition/, complete it in full and submit it no later than Jan. 3, 2021.
