INNOVATION COMPETITION

Canada-Israel Cardiovascular Innovation Forum held an innovation competition targeting early stage companies with projects in either cardiovascular devices or digital heart health. There were three categories of fundraising:
<$500k (e.g. Proof of Principle); $500-$1M (e.g. Preclinical Studies); and > $1M (e.g. First-in-Human Studies)

 

We received 31 applications. Judging panels from each country assessed the projects of the other country. Nine top rated projects from Israel and Canada were selected to present their innovation at a virtual event that will took place on April 25, 2021. 
Investors interested in cardiovascular innovations in both countries were invited to attend the presentations and to contact the companies of interest after the presentation.

 

Canada-Israel Cardiovascular Innovation Forum does not commit funding to any applying  group presenting at the forum, is not responsible for the statements of any group and does not  bear any legal or financial responsibility for arrangements between investors and presenters that result from the Forum.
