Entrepreneurship for Cardiovascular Health Opportunities (ECHO) is a 12-month online training program led by veteran entrepreneurs and high-calibre consultants across a variety of sectors.
Founded in 2018, 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.
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.
- Module 1: Principles of Entrepreneurship
- Module 2: Health Venture Rounds
- Module 3: Lessons from Leaders
- Module 4: Community of Mentors
- Module 5: Ignite Start-up Funding
**To reach teams across Canada, ECHO is now entirely virtual**
