What is N100?

Northumberland, Ontario, Canada’s annual $100,000 startup competition.

How does it work?

Call goes out January 9, apply by March 3. Competitive down-selection through three Rounds: The Pitch, Business Planning & Negotiation.

Who should compete?

Founder teams that get things done, high growth potential and technology-driven enterprises that will have a presence and impact in Northumberland.

Why N100?


Compete to secure a $100,000 convertible note and position your startup for follow-on investment.


Finalists receive free one-year software licenses from our official sponsors: MathWorks (MATLAB, Simulink and all other products with full technical support) and Budgeto (easy to use budgeting software for startups).


Gain valuable insight and feedback from the N100 Power Panel and Northumberland CFDC Investment Committee.


Hone your pitch and investment proposal and advance your business through a competitive gauntlet.


Take advantage of focused local partnership advantages in Northumberland (such as engineering, prototyping, manufacturing, high quality and competitively priced media and design talent, access to professional support and strategy services) while maintaining proximity to Toronto (just over an hour from Port Hope and Cobourg).


Benefit from concurrent entrepreneurial development and training along the way, from Northumberland CFDC, the Delta V Accelerator, and Spark Centre—whether you ultimately win or not.
