The I-3 Technology Start-Up Competition is for Nova Scotians with new high potential knowledge-based businesses. The competition takes place in five geographic zones across the province. A combination of cash and in-kind contributions is awarded to each first and second place zone winner. New this year are cash awards for the best overall submission in each of the following sectors: information and communications technology, life sciences, clean technology, and oceans technology.

At the end of the competition, Innovacorp will crown an overall provincial winner, awarding it with a $100,000 seed investment.

Innovacorp ran a pilot I-3 competition in Cape Breton in 2006, and subsequently held three provincial competitions. Over the years, the competition has received a remarkable 414 start-up company submissions, reflecting the increasingly high level of entrepreneurship happening across Nova Scotia.
