A unique chance to (literally) invest in your future 

If you’re a whiz at investing, think you can slay like the dragons on Dragon’s Den, or just like to fiddle around with your finances, then this competition is for you. CIBC presents the Capitalize for Kids Student Challenge where you’ll receive $1 Million in virtual currency to build the ultimate portfolio.

Here’s the deal: Over the fall semester, you’ll get to buy and sell equities in your portfolio using a professional-grade trading platform powered by IRESS.

This video explains…

So what’s in it for you? Oh nothing, just…

.Valuable experience

.Mentorship from business professionals

.Resume screenings

.Possible job opportunities

.A chance to win up to $2,000 cash credit applied to a CIBC investor’s Edge account*

It’s free to enter, instead they ask that you fundraise at least $100 to support children’s mental health initiatives. All money raised will go to support Kid’s Help Phone. So you’ll be getting industry experience while giving back.

The registration deadline has just been extended to October 7th. Get in while you can!

Investing not your thing? That’s cool. But it might be a friend’s thing. Tell anyone you think would kill this competition.
