U of T startup Onyx Motion to appear on CBC’s Next Gen Den

The U of T entrepreneurs working to improve your basketball game will soon take their own shot at a big investment: it seems the Onyx Motion team is set to appear on CBC’s Dragon’s Den spin-off, Next Gen Den.

Engineering alumni Marissa Wu and Vivek Kesarwani co-founded Onyx Motion as part of The Next 36. They recently signed on to be one of the latest cohort of UTEST companies, connecting them with funding and support from the software-focused accelerator produced jointly by U of T and MaRS Innovation.

Onyx Motion’s first product, SWISH, enables a user’s Android Wear smart-watch to record basketball shots and offer tips on focus, technique and more. The free app was included in the U of T News roundup of 2014 tech wearables.  It was also profiled in TechVibes.

And now, based on the trailer below, it looks like Onyx Motion is set to make their CBC debut. The Next Gen Den web series premieres Feb. 2, but until then you can read more about the pilot over at Betakit.
