IBTM World has crowned Canvas Planner the winner of its event incubator, ‘Event Business Accelerator’, a newly launched business mentorship and investment programme for young entrepreneurs. The winner was announced at a graduation ceremony following two days of live pitching to potential investors at IBTM World 2019, taking place at Fira Gran Via Barcelona from 19-21 November.

Canvas Planner is a tool which helps to improve remote digital performance by combining digital whiteboards called canvasses with tasks in order to create a visual and collaborative approach to task management. The founders, Nanna Ulsøe and Jane Houlind Ulsøe, received a €5,000 cash prize to help develop and scale the product to the meetings and events industry.

Jane Houlind Ulsøe, Co-founder, Canvas Planner, commented: “The EBA has been an amazing experience from beginning to end. Meeting and learning about the other contestants and working with the mentors and the judges has helped us to think very deeply into how we can best communicate our product as a solution to a very common challenge faced by event planners. It has also given us a huge amount of exposure and the opportunity to showcase our product to the 15,000 plus attendees at IBTM World. Winning the €5,000 will help us scale our product and extend our reach internationally, as well as give us a huge boost when it comes to our credibility in the industry. We’re delighted that Jason Scott has decided to be our mentor – he has experience, network and knowledge from the events industry, which is a great fit for us and our business.”
