The CIX Top 20, a program from the Canadian Innovation Exchange that showcases Canada’s most innovative companies, is calling for applications. A panel of industry leaders including venture capitalists, angel investors, funders, and corporate service providers, will select 20 technology companies from across Canada to be featured in a live showcase at CIX 2015.
The CIX Top 20 is meant to find the “most forward-looking companies in the Canadian innovation system,” according to their website.
Selected companies will be chosen based on the entrant’s demonstration of excellence in innovation, growth potential, competitive advantage and strength of business model. Notably, winners will be able to present at CIX 2015 at the MaRS Discover District in Toronto. The prizes for winning innovative companies also include two complimentary passes to the 2015 Canadian Innovation Exchange, mentorship from investment leaders, connections with potential partners, and more.
Applications are due September 25, and more information on prizes and applying can be found here.
