Hosted by the New Brunswick Innovation Foundation (NBIF), this biennial province-wide competition gives participants a unique opportunity to access start-up capital, mentoring, and support.

Daniel Kane, Harpreet Kohli, Esther Sangodoyin, and their start-up 'Better Than Reality' are among 5 finalists who will have their fate decided by viewers and voters such as yourself.

Their idea hopes to fill a need for improvements to training in the nuclear, energy utility, and other high risk industries.
