The second annual Indo-Canadian Innovative Project Competition was recently held at the College of Engineering Pune here.
The CoEP-SENECA Innovative Project Competition is a result of a triparty MOU signed between Seneca College, College of Engineering, Pune (CoEP) and The City of Markham, a media release said.
The MoU was established to foster entrepreneurship and create opportunities for both young Indian and Canadian innovators, it said.
"The competition provides student led start-ups, from both countries, with international exposure in the global markets as well as unique opportunities to pitch their innovative ideas to a panel of industry experts and angel investors," said the release.
This year's event was supported by Anant Sardeshmukh, Director General, MCCIA and Prof. B.B. Ahuja, Director CoEP. Apart from CoEP and Seneca there was a team from Walchand College of Engineering, Sangali which competed in the competition.
Pankaj Badatia, co founder and CEO of BioEmbed (CoEP - India) and Travis Clements-Khan Founder and CEO of Nextgen Labs (Seneca-Canada) were winners of the competition.
