The BioInnovation Challenge (BIC) was created for early stage life sciences companies or researchers with a clear intention to commercialize to help ease the transition from research laboratory to market. But BIC is more than just a pitch competition; it is a support program to assist life science companies and researchers in becoming established, viable entities. Since its inception in 2011, the BioInnovation Challenge has ushered 38 companies from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island through the program, each receiving significant training to position their business for investment attraction.
2016 competition offers more than $50,000 in seed funding and in-kind services to the winners.
Proposal evaluation and semi-finalist selection is based on:
- Innovation – Why is there a need for your product or idea?
- Benefit – What is the benefit and impact your idea will have?
- Commercialization Capability – How do you anticipate implementing your idea?
BIC is an opportunity to capitalize on valuable coaching and exposure for new, innovative life sciences ideas while competing for funds and services to help small businesses grow.
