We covered CIX in the past, and the Achilles Media team are hosting another great event in
CIX conducts an exhaustive search for the most innovative ideas, products, services and companies in the country. Each year 20 technology and clean technologies are selected via a qualified Selection Committee to showcase their innovative product and services in front of the CIX community. Each of the selected 20 will be asked to deliver a seven-minute presentation live on stage at CIX. Recognized industry experts will act as Judges, evaluating the merit of their product or service and giving constructive feedback and guidance. The CIX community present at the event will vote for the CIX 2009 Award for “Canadian Innovation Leader”.
I’ve written a lot about CIX (Exchanging Innovations Canadian style, CIX Survey Says). This is a similar discussion on the 2 different models presented by TechCrunch50 and by Demo. CIX is a great event to connect later stage startups, investors, and the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Canada and the US at a local venue.
