The Research Innovation Office at the University of Guelph (UofG) is pleased to invite you to celebrate innovators who are putting knowledge into action in ways that have a real-world impact!

Beginning with an afternoon of dialogue and case studies that highlight the many ways UofG researchers identify needs and validate concepts that improve the lives of external stakeholders, the Gryphon’s LAAIR Innovation Showcase will feature stories about commercialization as well as knowledge mobilization. The day culminates in a high-energy pitch competition where six corporations, each with roots in the UofG research community, will go head-to-head to win a total of $15,000 in prizes! Following the competition join us for a champagne toast to congratulate the Gryphon's LAAIR Pitch Competitors and to celebrate the entrepreneurship successes at the University of Guelph.
