MYAC's Den 2024

Welcome to MYAC's Den, a youth-led entrepreneurial event organized by Niagara Falls Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council (NFMYAC). MYAC's Den is a platform for young innovators to pitch their business ideas, projects and/or services to a panel of judges composed of investors and business owners. MYAC's Den aims to empower young entrepreneurs by providing them with an opportunity to showcase their creativity, passion, and business acumen. Participants will seek feedback, guidance, and potential investment to kickstart their ventures.

The event follows a dragon's-den style format where each participant will have a limited time to pitch their business idea to the panel of judges. This could be a product or a service. Judges will then provide feedback and ask questions to assess the viability and potential of each idea. Each candidate will have 3 minutes to present and 5 minutes for Q&A from the panelists, each candidate getting about 2 minutes to setup whatever props or displays they may use. Projector and sound system available. 

Entries will need to demonstrate a robust business plan; that their idea is actionable and logistically sound. If you have what it takes, keep calm and carry on!

NFMYAC's New Logo!

MYAC logoThe winning design created by Christie Wang (Gr. 12 A.N. Myer S.S.) 

The first NFMYAC logo was designed almost 20 years ago! That’s longer than any of the current committee members have been on this planet. With a desire for a fresh new look, NFMYAC launched a logo contest in March of this year. Open to all post-secondary students across the city, the contest was a huge success: the team was overjoyed by the variety and quality of the submissions. The logos were submitted for blind review by Mayor Jim Diodati and NFMYAC. On May 5, the winning logo was officially adopted.
