Four emerging companies have been carefully screened and selected to present their pitch to an audience of angel investors and a panel of expert judges. The four lucky companies, who can win $43,000 in prizes are:
Bio-Organic Catalyst Canada
Bio-Organics Catalyst Canada (BOCC) is pioneering organic waste processing improvements through the development of liquid organic catalysts that transform unwanted molecular elements of organic waste into inert gas, increase oxidation within waste treatment processes and accelerate biomass decomposition within Anaerobic Digestion. BOCC’s unique opportunity is to connect leading scientific expertise with a patented breakthrough catalytic technology.
Temporal Power has developed a proprietary flywheel energy storage system (FES) that can be used to hold energy for over 8 hour time periods or deliver high amounts of power over a short period of time. FES is a clean technology that has no direct emissions and contains no toxic components.
Dx2EcoSuite is a smart energy technology developed by Dx2 for cost-effectively managing energy consumption through automated and wireless means. Communication to end-devices or smart products is done through serial, Ethernet or wireless connection and provides consumers with a consolidated view of their energy consumption by interfacing with energy subsystems in a building.
Satlogix Inc. presents MILO, an automated vehicle tracking solution that uses GPS technology to generate a business travel log. Milo keeps track of a driver’s work schedule so it only tracks trips during business hours – this eliminates the guess work and manual labour involved in keeping a vehicle log.
This event will provide investors with the opportunity to listen and compare potential investment opportunities with new and emerging companies. Register here. For questions or for more information contact Shantanu Mittal at firstname.lastname@example.org
