Entrepreneurship for Cardiovascular Health Opportunities (ECHO): CALL FOR APPLICATIONS


To reach teams across Canada, ECHO is now entirely virtual, beginning in 2020.


We are pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2020-2021 ECHO program!


Founded in 2018, ECHO is a free 12-month online training program led by veteran entrepreneurs and high-calibre consultants across a variety of sectors. Comprised of a unique combination of five complementary modules, ECHO provides innovators of cardiovascular technologies with entrepreneurship training, mentorship, and networking opportunities, and the chance to pitch for start-up funding from a $250,000 pool.


Please see the attached brochure. You can also visit our webpage at https://tedrogersresearch.ca/ECHO/ for program details, instructions and application forms.


If you have any questions regarding ECHO, please contact Soror Sharifpoor (soror.sharifpoor@utoronto.ca).


ECHO is organized and funded by the Translational Biology and Engineering Program (TBEP) – the University of Toronto component of the Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research – in partnership with the Health Innovation Hub (H2i), a University of Toronto campus-linked accelerator.
