BioTEC Pitch Competition Applications Close

October 7 All day

Applications for the Biotechnology and Bioengineering Conference (BioTEC) pitch competition are NOW OPEN at www.uwbiotec.ca/pitch-competition! BioTEC is hosting its second annual pitch competition focusing on early-stage student-run ventures related to medical devices, digital health, and therapeutics with $5000 in prizes up for grabs. 

You will have a chance to present your startup idea to a panel of leading health tech venture capitalist judges for invaluable insights to take your idea to the next level. Successful teams will also have the chance to receive 1:1 mentorship on how to best prepare your pitch from coaches at various incubators. Winning teams will receive the opportunity to develop relationships with our prize sponsors: adMare BioInnovations, Concept by Velocity, Lumira Ventures, and Biomedical Zone.

This competition is open to all teams with at least one teammate registered at a Canadian post-secondary institution at any level of study. We especially welcome students who are completing a capstone research or thesis project in their final year of undergraduate studies or graduate studies to apply. For more information about the pitch competition, please visit our website.

Applications CLOSE on October 7th at 11:59PM, so be sure to apply today!
