$100K Pitch Competition Winner

We are so excited to announce that RATIO.CITY was selected out of 8 finalists for the grand prize of $100K in start up capital in Communitech's Fierce Founder Pitch Competition!

 

A Toronto architect determined to foster urban development and create “more dense, liveable cities,” has emerged as the winner of the latest Fierce Founders Bootcamp pitch competition.

Monika Jaroszonek, CEO and co-founder of Ratio.City, earned the $100,000 grand prize for the best pitch, making her case Thursday before a standing-room only audience at the Tannery Event Centre and a panel of five judges, beating out seven other competitors.

“This is very exciting because now it means we can start building out this functionality that we’ve been talking about and hopefully hit the market as quickly as possible,” said Jaroszonek after the symbolic cheque presentation.

“This really lets us hit the ground running. We’ve been bootstrapping, self-funded to date, and this lets us expand our team and … create a product that will be viable in the market, and help build those dynamic cities that will make great neighbourhoods for us all to live in.”
