A Kitchener-based tech company is taking home $10,000 for the idea behind its professional mapping system, which locates and maps electrical circuits.
During the event, four companies pitched their business ideas to a panel of judges, which then evaluated each proposal before choosing a winner.
CircuitIQ won $5,000 for the Judges' Choice Award, and an additional $5,000 as the People’s Choice Award winner, which was voted on by the audience.
Other competitors in the competition included:
- NTSense Technology, which develops wearable sensors to monitor a person’s hormones and chemicals in real time;
- WaivetheWait, an automated patient communication system that helps make medical clinics run more efficiently; and
- GeriMedWorks, which provides frail older adults with prehabilitation services that help them prepare for major surgeries and reduce post-op complications.
Based in Sudbury, NORCAT provides skilled labour training and serves as a business incubation centre, with a focus on mining technology.
