We would like to congratulate the 25 participants and 11 teams who took part in the Techno2011 workshop! Over the past month the teams have worked tirelessly on developing their ideas, conducting market research, creating go-to-market strategies, learning the fundamentals of IP, legals and corporate governance, and how to present their companies. The “Life is a Pitch” session took place on July 18th at MaRS where each team had 10 minutes to show off all the work they had done in the past four weeks. The new companies ranged from Sciventions, an online marketplace for unique scientific products, to Biostring, providing simple solutions for testing public water contamination, to BreqLabs, who provides customized hardware and software systems for high speed data processing. Following the pitch session, each team much provide an executive summary as well as a go-forward plan on how they will execute their ideas.
The IOS is very grateful for the support of our sponsors, including MaRS, the Office of the President (UofT), Department of Chemistry (UofT), Department of Physics (UofT), and Ryerson University. Also, we would like to thank all of the lecturers, workshop leaders, and mentors who took time out of their busy schedules to come and work with our teams.
More news about the different companies will be coming soon, so keep an eye out!
