Are you a graduate student who has poured hours into your research and feel like there is an opportunity to create a business from it?  Come out and see how previous grad students were able to monetize or use their research experience to enter into the startup world! This event will feature a networking session complete with hors d’oeuvres, a panel discussion of local founders and UWaterloo professors, and the winner of the Velocity Graduate Student Startup Fund will be announced. Meet current grad students, hear about how former students commercialized their research, and celebrate award winners.

The panel will be moderated by Velocity Business Advisor Adrien Côté and will consist of:

Lichen Zhang, PriveHealth
