BioNova’s BioInnovation Challenge Junior (BIC Junior) inspires Nova Scotia’s high school and first year post-secondary students to create a business idea for the Health and Life Sciences sector that has real commercialization potential. With the support and guidance of BioNova and Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia (JA Nova Scotia), students are given the knowledge and skills necessary to create their business idea and pitch it to a panel of judges during BioPort. For many participants, this will be greatly influential to mapping out their future career.

Programs like this are essential to growing the Health and Life Sciences industry of tomorrow by:

Raising awareness among students, educators and the public about the value of the Health & Life Sciences sector

Supporting student learning and entrepreneurship

Shaping and cultivating the next generation of leaders
