Canadian Music Week, running from April 18-22, has announced that it will be bringing back its start-up pitch competition Launch Pad again next year.

The event will be held on April 19 at the Sheraton Centre Hotel and the prize will include a cash award, a one-hour meeting with each member of a judging panel of industry professionals and a 15-minute presentation during the festival and conference’s Global Creators Summit.

The competition is open to music-connected start-ups in the early states of development.

Last year’s judges included Michael Wekerle, Larry Marcus, Jeff Liebenson, Jeremy Silver and Ted Cohen.
