FAQs

What is the Synapse Life Science Competition?

The Synapse Life Science Competition is designed to help move innovative Life Science products and services out of the lab and into the market, by pairing up Life Science Innovators with business and entrepreneurship students.

The competition is separated into four phases. In January each year, the competition teams up life science innovators with business, science, and entrepreneurship students from McMaster University and Mohawk College. Together, each team produces business and commercialization plans for their ventures. With additional training session, each team is prepared to pitch or present at the final showcase in March.
