Return to the LAAIR

The Gryphon's LAAIR Innovation Showcase and Pitch Competition returns in 2020 with new teams and technologies and will take place at Cutten Fields in Guelph on Wednesday, May 27th from 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm with a champagne reception to follow! Improv comedian and entrepreneur Jay Reid of The Making Box will join us once again as host of the evenings' proceedings.

The objectives of the competition are threefold:

  1. Share the real-world impact UofG innovators have on the Ontario economy with the campus community, OMAFRA, our partners and the public;
  2. Provide a platform for UofG innovators to share their success stories and to initiate new conversations and partnerships that will further enhance the impact; and
  3. Inspire our wider campus community to adopt an impact focused mindset.
