On Sept. 8, young entrepreneurs from across the city, including many University of Ottawa students and alumni, joined members of the community at city hall to pitch their business models as part of the seventh annual Startup Garage Rally.

Two University of Ottawa students won $20,000 to further invest in their new company in a pitch competition for student entrepreneurs.

Martin Kratky-Katz and Artem Abramov founded a new business called MicroMetrics in May. The company helps other businesses receive instant customer feedback by offering survey software and tablets to stores.
