Welcome to ICUBE’s Pitch Night – Spring 2016
April 28, 2016 – Innovation Complex (lower level) UofT Mississauga
This January, a cohort of over 30 innovators, representing 12 start-ups joined ICUBE’s ICE Program (Innovation to Commercialization for Entrepreneurs) and several more teams have joined the Open Program along the way. They brought their dreams and ideas, and throughout the last few months, while being full time students, or members of the community, worked at turning their concept into reality. Today they are ready to share their concept with you. Some are developing prototypes, others validation, others working towards investment and others have found a different path to innovation. Each start-up team has a unique story to share.
Be our guest April 28th to celebrate their achievements, and find out what’s been cooking at ICUBE – UofT’s early stage incubator! (If you have not yet had a chance to register, please do so here).
