Marketing students Salvador Lara and Sean McKnight from team “Off We Go” won admission to a four-month incubator program with the Dunin-Deshpande Queen's Innovation Centre. As part of this experience, they will be granted a $7,000 stipend for up to three co-founders, up to $4,000 seed capital to build a venture around their idea, along with full participation in the Queen's Innovation Centre Summer Initiative (QICSI 2022) program, and the opportunity to pitch again in August for a grand prize of $30,000 to accelerate their innovation.
Their idea outlined a platform that provides tailor-made tourist experiences, using augmented content and engaging stories. The platform works along with businesses to boost the local economy and with the city who can use the data to make informed decisions.
