Ontario's Premier Life Science Pitch 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.

On March 25, Hamilton’s thriving life science ecosystem gathered for the first time, virtually, for Innovation Factory’s seventh annual Synapse Competition, Ontario’s premier life science pitch competition.

This years’ top three finalists, Bisep Inc., Hyivy Health and PROVA Innovations each delivered their pitch to the judging panel, competing for their share of $75,000 in cash and in-kind prizes, while the remaining finalists competed for best poster.

New this year, the Synapse Competition also awarded the Praxis Prize of $25,000 to Ontario-based entrepreneurs and researchers working on innovations to improve health outcomes for people with spinal cord injuries.

Congratulations to Bisep Inc, and all of the winners and finalists!
