The Research Innovation Office at the University of Guelph is pleased to invite you to celebrate innovators who are putting knowledge into action in ways that have a real-world impact!
Beginning with an afternoon of dialogue and case studies that highlight the many ways U of G researchers identify needs and validate concepts that improve the lives of external stakeholders, the Gryphon’s LAAIR Innovation Showcase will feature stories about commercialization and knowledge mobilization. The day culminates in a high-energy pitch competition where six corporations, each with roots in U of G’s research community, will go head-to-head to win a total of $15,000 in prizes! Following the competition, join us for a champagne toast to congratulate the Gryphon’s LAAIR Pitch Competitors and celebrate entrepreneurship successes at the University of Guelph.
