Innovation Factory’s Synapse Competition is Ontario’s premier life science pitch competition. Designed to help move your innovative life science products and services out of the lab and into the market, the competition pairs innovators with business and entrepreneurship students, and provides the training, mentorship, and resources to be successful.

Come meet the 15 finalists, and hear the top 3 pitch their ideas on stage for the chance to win OVER $100,000 in cash and in-kind resources. 

Learn about emerging life science companies, network with industry thought leaders, and support Hamilton's growing life sciences ecosystem!

Refreshments and a cash bar will be available.

What is the Synapse Life Science Competition?

The competition is separated into four phases. The competition teams up life science innovators with business, science, and entrepreneurship students from university or college. Together, the teams produce business and commercialization plans, and a pitch for their ventures.

Teams have the chance to win cash and in-kind resources at the final showcase!
