The key to the successful SCBUS mentorship platform at the University of Waterloo was a strategic partnership with Ten Thousand Coffees (10KC), a user-friendly platform with AI capabilities, resulting in over 600 students and alumni connected for mentorship and networking opportunities, with a 96% satisfaction rate and continuous improvement based on feedback.

On November 13, Abigail Leu, Jake Goodman, Jared Richstone, and Shaylon Godse placed first overall at the 17th annual Fusion Conference, hosted by University of Waterloo. The Fusion Conference, operating since 2004, merges knowledge from science, business, and technology fields through a unique theme each year. Graduate and undergraduate students from around the world were encouraged to compete for a prize pool of $6,000.  

Hello, I’m Jonny, a final year student studying in the Science and Business co-op program at the University of Waterloo. I am specializing in Biochemistry and doing a minor in Economics. I used all my co-ops to explore industries from finance, to consulting, to renewable energy and venture capital. Along the way, I found my passion for working with startups and being in VC. After finishing up an internship this summer at Esplanade Ventures, a HealthTech focused VC in Canada, I moved down to Silicon Valley.

WatSolve’s Fireside Chat with IGM Financial’s Chief Operating Officer, Mike Dibden, was a great success! Although it was a virtual event, attendance was not by any means low! WatSolve was proud to host this event on a platform all Science and Business students could attend. Attendees showed a great deal of enthusiasm and had their questions answered by Mike.

While being a great storyteller, the level of expertise and intellectual capital he brought to the table was remarkable.
