Media advisory: Startup Garage Rally — 2018 edition

Posted on Thursday, August 30, 2018


Startup Garage invites you to join its 2018 startups to celebrate their success. This summer, Startup Garage gave 10 ventures co-founded and led by students or recent University of Ottawa graduates the opportunity to accelerate their businesses, providing them with office space, mentorship, training and funding.

Now, you will have a chance to see exciting startups like Poly, which manufactures recycling systems that transform discarded plastic into useful products. Other startups will include Noibu, which allows shoppers to experience high-end retail stores around the world through virtual reality, and Flow Filters, which manufactures a personal marijuana odour eliminating and air quality control device. Don’t miss this chance to see Ottawa’s future entrepreneurial leaders!

Startup Garage is a University of Ottawa initiative to foster and support youth entrepreneurship. The program is made possible through the additional generous support of the Ontario Centres of Excellence, Invest Ottawa, Gowling WLG, Logan Katz LLP and the BMO Startup Garage Fund.
