EPICentre would also like to thank everyone who applied for the Founder’s Program and for your continued interest in EPICentre. We highly encourage everyone to apply to our EPIC Discovery Program to develop your idea for resubmission to our pilot Fall 2016 RBC EPIC Founder’s Program (details coming soon).
