LiONʼS LAIR is an annual competition presented by Innovation Factory and The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce. The competition gives ten of the region’s up-and-coming entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of Hamilton’s top business experts, the “Lions,” for a chance to win over $100,000 in cash and in-kind resources. This event brings together the entrepreneurship and innovation community in Hamilton, Ontario.

This year’s awards gala will take place September 29 at Carmen’s Banquet Centre – save the date!
