There are only 10 days left to apply for your chance at one of approximately 45 different awards ranging from $5,000-$25,000.
If you have innovative idea for products, inventions and technologies that are relevant to the Canadian economy, we encourage you to apply to The Norman Esch Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship Awards.
There are three different categories (or stages) that you can apply to, based on how advanced you are in the ideation/ development process:
Stage 1: Interaction Award ($5,000): if students have an idea but need to map out a plan or determine potential market demand.
Stage 2: Development Award ($8,000): if students need time and funds to develop a business plan and/or create a prototype.
Stage 3: Market Readiness Award (up to $25,000): if a student’s idea is at the pre-commercialization stage but they need funds to take the final steps.
For more details, please see attached overview document.
Deadline: Wednesday, March 27, 2013. To learn more about what stage is right for student and the application process involved, please go to: www.ryerson.ca/feas/eschawards
