LiON’S LAIR

The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce & Innovation Factory have come together to present LiON’S LAIR – a celebration of entrepreneurship in Hamilton.

LiON’S LAIR provides Hamiltonians with the opportunity to experience the thrill of start-up investment as aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators face a panel of Hamilton’s top business executives and solicit up to $100,000 to get their companies off the ground.

From 60+ applicants, ten finalists will be selected to pitch their idea to a panel of experts in a television studio environment. The video shorts will be presented at the LiON’S LAIR investment forum at Carmen’s Banquet Centre, where $100,000 in cash and in-kind prizes may be awarded at the discretion of the panel.

Join The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, Innovation Factory along with Hamilton’s business experts and community icons for cocktails, dinner, and an unforgettable evening in the LiON’S LAIR!
