Proteus Innovation Competition

CREATING VIABLE COMMERCIALIZATION STRATEGIES

The Proteus Innovation Competition is an intense four-month competition that will challenge individuals to create a viable commercialization strategy for 1 of 3 promising technologies, in hopes of winning a cash prize!

This three part competition allows contestants to hone their business skills, work with a variety of experienced advisors, and accelerate the commercialization process on discoveries coming out of Ontario’s institutions.

We have selected 3 technologies from 3 universities: Western University, McMaster University, and the University of Windsor.

2019/20 COMPETITION EVENTS

Once you have assembled your team and selected your technology, register for the competition and submit your abstract.
