Welcome to the McGill Innovation Fund (MIF)! Entering its 3rd year of operation, the MIF is the largest fund of its kind at McGill and has already provided nearly $1 million of support to participating teams. But the MIF experience is about so much more than money – it provides access to an amazing network of advisors, service providers, interns, and networking opportunities.

$1 million+ awarded to teams since 2021
19 teams supported since 2021
$75,000 new supplemental award for Antimicrobial Resistance

The MIF is open to researchers from all Faculties, and companies who have ties to McGill (i.e., a signed license agreement or equity arrangement). Applying is as simple as completing a webform along with a PowerPoint and a short video. For those interested in applying, head to the How to Apply pages to learn more about the process. The next application window opens September 25 and the final deadline is November 17.

But the MIF is more than just an entrepreneurial competition, and there are many ways to get involved. Students can work as interns for selected teams, alumni can become advisors, and we are always looking for engaging and passionate speakers to share their expertise on a variety of business-related topics.
