Velocity 5k winners F22

Fall 2022 Velocity $5K winners share desire to innovate

Excitement permeated the packed room as eight finalist teams made their last effort to convince a panel of judges that their business idea was deserving of one of four $5,000 awards at Velocity’s $5K pitch competition.  

The fall term pitch competition took place November 23 in the Black and Gold Room at the University of Waterloo’s Student Life Centre. Student startup teams had only three minutes to pitch, and three minutes to answer questions from Judges Neha Khera, General Partner at 2048 Ventures, Sydney Robinson, Cofounder of Vessl Prosthetics and Philbert Chan, Student Venture Fund Associate.
