Present your valuable ideas for free

Schedule for DiscoveryLab Meetings

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 panel members from Bennett Jones, Brass Dome Ventures, Janalta Interactive, Pangaea Ventures, Parlee McLaws, Prosperity Investments, Ripple Enterprises, TEC Edmonton, Threshold Impact and VA Angels, as well as innovation teams from the University and Alberta Health Services, who will then be better equipped to advise you and address your specific needs.
