The announcement is made by CBSA President & CEO Holli Riebel, who says, "Six finalists will be selected from the applicants and the winner will receive a $7,500 cash prize at the competition."
"The Venture Showcase creates a huge amount of excitement at the BioWest Conference and gives our emerging bioscience companies an opportunity to present their technologies on a large scale.
