ECHO Year 3 – Call for Applications

The Ted Rogers Centre and its partners are committed to helping commercialize new cardiovascular innovations and technologies so they may reach the market sooner.

The ECHO program is a key part of that mission – and is now open to any Canadian-based clinician, scientist, entrepreneur and/or student.

ECHO is now virtual

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 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 visit our ECHO website for details, instructions and application forms.

If you have any questions regarding ECHO, please contact program manager Soror Sharifpoor.

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.
