The EPICentre Blue Sky Mixer had a successful start on January 21, 2015 at EPICentre Odette. The Blue Sky annual competition allows students to create and explore their entrepreneurial mind set. Students from different faculties were invited to meet other students on campus during the event and were encouraged to develop multi-disciplinary teams. The dynamic and friendly atmosphere during the mixer allowed for open communication amongst participants and facilitated the formation of compatible teams.
The EPICentre Blue Sky Competition requires that students come up with a solution to a problem. With this solution, they must create a 2-minute video pitch in teams of 2-4 students. These teams must be comprised of students from at least two different areas of study (i.e. 2 business students and 2 computer science students). Prizes for Blue Sky Competition: 1st place = $1500 + trip to Toronto, 2nd place = $750 + trip to Toronto, 3rd place = $500 + trip to Toronto.
The 2 minute video pitch is due on March 5, 2015. It is not too late to sign up for this event. For more information, contact Nicole Anderson: firstname.lastname@example.org
