Technology, Innovation & Medicine (TIM)

Schedule for DiscoveryLab Meetings and TIM talks at NANUC

Pitch your plan to a supportive panel of business experts and investors in 10 minutes (or give a 1 minute elevator pitch) and receive free advice on how to progress your valuable ideas. Register below and send a non-technical, non-confidential executive summary of your plan at least one week beforehand to confirm your slot and prepare the advisors.

We'll share your plan with the panel members from Bennett Jones, Brass Dome Ventures, Janalta Interactive, Parlee McLaws, Prosperity Investments, Ripple Enterprises, TEC Edmonton, Threshold Impact and VA Angels, who will then be better equipped to advise you and address your specific needs.

Early stage and preformation ventures welcome. Check out the PROGRAM and PANEL, and contact us with any questions.
