The THero Competition is an International Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition from 8 different countries including technology hubs in Silicon Valley, Paris and Toronto. We will be having a series of events at the IBM ventureLAB Convergence Centre to review Pitches from companies with the winners representing Canada in the Competition in Guangzhou, China. The companies entering in the competition will be businesses that have the potential to extend their business into the exciting Chinese marketplace. The three selected Canadian winners will be competing with other global winners from different cities in the city of Guangzhou, China.
