Eleven Canadian startups heading to Buffalo for 43North competition


Back in June, Buffalo put out the call for Canadian startups to join its 43North competition, which is offering startups $5 million in prize money, including a grand prize of $1 million, six $500,000 awards, and four $250,000 awards. 43North has announced its 2015 semifinalists list, and eleven Canadian companies have made the cut.

Canadian companies from ‘around the lake’ in Southern Ontario dominate the list, with one startup making it down from Halifax. Here’s the full list:

    CryoCaddy Inc. – London, Ontario
    Florcan – Toronto, Ontario
    Limestone Labs Ltd. – Toronto, Ontario
    Mindful Scientific – Halifax, Nova Scotia
    Plum.io – Waterloo, Ontario
    Qidni Labs Inc. – Kitchener, Ontario
    Qoints – Toronto, Ontario
    Sitata – Burlington, Ontario
    SteadfastBeta – Toronto, Ontario
    Structur3D Printing – Kitchener, Ontario
    SYNG Pharmaceuticals Inc – Kingston, Ontario

These Canadian startups, along with 99 other competitors from around the world, will have to wait until October 29th to see if they’ve hit the prize money. Wish them luck!
