Startups Pitch Contest
For its first edition of 2021, the EFFERVESCENCE pitch contest for start-ups will be used to fuel the rise of Canadian start-ups whose innovations aim to transform the field of life sciences and health technologies (LSHT).
The 10 start-ups selected as finalists in the contest will have the opportunity to present their pitch before the EFFERVESCENCE participants, during a virtual session that will be open to the public.
Their pitches will be judged by a jury of experts and specialized LSHT investors from Canada, the US and Europe. The evaluation by the jury members will take the form of constructive advice and possible solutions to be explored to allow the entrepreneurial team to push its project even further.
There will be a $20,000 grand prize sponsored by Pfizer, a $10,000 prize sponsored by adMare and a dozen other cash and in-kind prizes will be awarded to the winning teams to enable them to continue their transformative innovation momentum.
