University of Toronto to host Techno Pitches 2014

July 9, 2014

TORONTO, ON – On Fri­day, July 11 the Impact Cen­tre will host Tech­no Pitch­es, the cul­mi­na­tion of a month-long train­ing ses­sion for 38 “techno­pre­neurs” work­ing to bring­ing their tech-based com­pa­nies to mar­ket – com­pa­nies that aim to pro­vide peo­ple with a bet­ter qual­i­ty of life. On Fri­day, aspir­ing techno­pre­neurs will present their com­pa­nies and what they have learned dur­ing the month-long entre­pre­neur­ship train­ing.

The four-week pro­gram pro­vides fun­da­men­tal entre­pre­neur­ship train­ing to grad­u­ate stu­dents from across the phys­i­cal sci­ences and engi­neer­ing to help them take their tech­ni­cal, aca­d­e­m­ic work from sci­ence to soci­ety through start­up com­pa­nies. Their com­pa­nies are devel­op­ing tech­nolo­gies that range from a clean­ing for­mu­la­tion that will remove envi­ron­men­tal aller­gens, to a sys­tem that can selec­tive­ly sep­a­rate stem cells.
