On November 24, the Conrad Centre hosted the Hult Prize @ UWaterloo Finals, a cross campus social entrepreneurship competition which challenged students to develop social enterprises that will restore the rights and dignities of refugees. Ten student teams pitched their solutions, competing for a chance to represent UWaterloo at the Hult Prize Regional Finals.
On Tuesday September 6, Enterprise Co-op students pitched for several prizes of $5,000 at the Ignition Week pitch competition. Each competing student had five minutes to pitch their venture to a panel of judges, followed by a three-minute question period.
It’s been an incredibly busy month for Outreach with groups from the U.S., Mexico, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand visiting to learn about the University of Waterloo's unique approach to entrepreneurship.
