TELUS has chosen three of Alberta’s most promising technology startup companies to compete in the TEC VenturePrize business plan competition

Edmonton, AB – April 23, 2015 – Telecommunications leader TELUS has chosen three top candidates from Alberta to compete for a grand prize of $30,000 cash in the annual TEC VenturePrize business plan competition.

Now in its 13th year, the VenturePrize program provides early stage Alberta-based technology entrepreneurs with resources, training and funding to accelerate their business. The program culminates in a business plan competition where participants can enter one of three competition streams: Fast Growth, Student or the TELUS Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) stream.

TELUS has selected the following finalists to compete for the grand prize:


OMx is accelerating the development of advanced molecular diagnostics with technologies to analyze and combine data about the chemicals, proteins and DNA in the body. Their first product helps improve and optimize diet and lifestyle with a urine test that measures indicators for diet and wellness.


A software company within the oil and gas sector, MASV has a new way to benefit both rental companies and renters of oil and gas equipment. By connecting renters to the rental companies that have the relevant items, they reduce downtime stress while increasing profit for both parties.

Advancing Edge Technologies

Advancing Edge’s new product addresses technology deficiencies with diagnosis reporting in anatomical pathology (providing patients with the final diagnosis from tissue biopsies and body fluids). Their state-of-the-art touchscreen-based examination software delivers a more streamlined, accurate, and consistent pathology diagnostic report while also saving money and time.

The winner will be announced on April 29, 2015, at the VenturePrize Awards Celebration held at the Edmonton Shaw Conference Centre. The event brings together the business and innovation community to celebrate the future of Alberta entrepreneurship.
