Innovation4D connects the venture capital community with the start-ups working in the Xerox Research Centre of Canada’s Innovation Hub. This premier event features guest speakers, a tour of a state-of-the-art pilot plant, pitch sessions, and networking opportunities.
Since 2013, the Xerox Research Centre of Canada has been nurturing an innovation hub in Mississauga, Ontario. With the help of its hub partners – RIC Centre and GreenCentre Canada – they have developed an ecosystem focused on advanced materials, advanced manufacturing, and Cleantech.
The City of Mississauga is a proud sponsor of Innovation4D and would like to showcase the six innovative companies that are participating in the program.
Suncayr is a company that displays great innovation and business growth across the greater Toronto region. Suncayr works closely with the Xerox Research Centre and is our featured company this week.
With skin cancer being one of the fastest growing and most preventable (greater than 95%) forms of cancers, Suncayr is committed to changing the way the world sees ultraviolet exposure.
Suncayr is a UV-detection technology company. They are developing technologies that consumers can use to increase their awareness about their health so they can better protect themselves. Their first product, SPOT, focuses on the consumer health market. SPOT will tell sunscreen users exactly when their sunscreen is no longer protecting them, helping people improve their sun protection behaviour by using sunscreen more effectively. They have developed a completely novel technology to accurately mimic how sunscreen interacts with and is removed from our skin.
Founded in 2014 by nanotechnology engineers, Suncayr has been recognized by leading technology and entrepreneur organizations as a simple, yet important innovation in helping reduce the risk of skin cancer.
