Conrad School of Entrepreneurship and Business teams participating in the 2021 CCSBE Conference Student Pitch Competition have had a truly impressive showing. Of the top 20 teams, seven are from the University of Waterloo.

The 2021 Canadian Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (CCSBE) conference focuses on diverse approaches to advancing entrepreneurship and driving economic recovery across societal sectors and countries. It is hosted virtually by the J. Herbert Smith Centre for Technology Management & Entrepreneurship at the University of New Brunswick (UNB) from October 20 to 22.

The pitch competition sees project teams from all disciplines submit innovative ideas such as MBET student team ConnectMe, a web-based application designed to provide mental health service therapists with a platform that can reduce the linguistic barriers and cultural differences for immigrant patients, and ComPeat Soil exploring a sustainable alternative to peat-based soils.
