You are invited to attend Falcons’ Fortunes, FACIT’s premier event to celebrate and grow the entrepreneurial spirit within the cancer research and innovation communities. Now in its 11th year, the Falcons’ Fortunes event features six Ontario rising stars pitching their breakthrough cancer innovation as they compete for the $100,000 Ernsting Entrepreneurship Award.

FACIT is cultivating entrepreneurial scientists who will drive a culture of commercialization where Ontario-based cancer research becomes Ontario-made solutions to benefit patients worldwide. Join us and many others from the life science and start-up ecosystems across the province for the pitch competition and networking reception and show your support for all the cancer innovators.


FACIT actively manages our diverse portfolio of Ontario oncology assets (including therapeutics, imaging, diagnostics, and technology platforms) that span all stages of commercialization, from proof-of-concept to clinical development.



With critical seed funding, FACIT makes it possible for Ontario’s best cancer research discoveries to compete globally and reach patients.
