NeuroSphere, McGill’s neuroscience innovation accelerator, is pleased to announce the ten grant recipients from its first Ignite competition, which launched in Fall 2019.
In March, NeuroSphere welcomed representatives of acceleration hubs and experts from the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Montreal for a one-day event focusing on innovation and entrepreneurship for researchers. Speakers included Yannick Roy (NeuroTechX), Christian Dansereau (Perceive AI), Dylan Wade Roskams-Edris (The Neuro), Margaret Magdesian (Ananda Devices, pictured), and more. Attendees were able to engage in networking sessions throughout the day.
