Announcing the Alpha Exchange Innovation Campaign, a contest for start-up Canadian companies and a year-long editorial and mentoring campaign.
March 1, 2012

Backbone magazine and The Alpha Exchange are excited to launch the Start Me Up Innovation Campaign.

The Alpha Exchange Innovation Campaign is about finding inspired Canadian technology ideas, and helping entrepreneurs bring those ideas to the marketplace. The product or service can focus on any sector and use any type of technology.

The campaign includes the following:
1. Prizes: $100,000 in prizes (part seed capital, part products and services)
2. A live pitch event, held at OCE’s Discovery 2012 event on May 15th.
3. A full year of follow-up editorial exposure (successes, challenges, advice) in print and online

The top 200 applicants will also receive invitations to the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT2012), Oct. 22 to 24 in Montreal.
