Help choose RBC's Next Great Innovator

January 27th is the peer voting deadline to pick the fifth team finalist


RBC's Next Great Innovator Challenge™ asked university and college students from across Canada to "describe an innovation, idea or concept that Canadian financial institutions should consider to make it easier for clients to do business with us." Submissions were received from more than 100 teams, from schools across Canada and narrowed down to the top 15 entries. The 15 submissions were then reviewed by the RBC Innovation Council and the top four were selected as finalists.

The Council also chose five additional submissions for the web-based peer voting selection process, which starts on January 16, 2008, and gives students the ability to choose the fifth finalist.


RBC is inviting students to choose the fifth finalist through a web-based voting process. The entry that receives the most votes will be chosen as the fifth finalist. Competing for more than $45,000 in total prizes, the top five teams will come to Toronto for final evaluation by the RBC Next Great Innovator judging panel consisting of some of RBC's top executives.


Anyone with a computer can vote for their favourite idea.


Visit www.nextgreatinnovator.com to view a short synopsis of each entry that is eligible for peer voting and then vote for your favourite idea.


Voting will be open from January 16 through to January 27, 2008.
