Week 15 of UIT

Week 15 of UIT

Welcome to 2015!!


It has been a nice break from studies and spending time with the family, now it is time to jump back in the deep end!

So this week at UIT we are totally focused on preparing our presentations for the One Nova Scotia coalition. They are visiting us here at the New Dawn Centre for Social Innovation on Monday, January 12th, 2015. We (12 UIT students) will be delivering a 3-min presentation on a project that we worked on first semester to highlight the power of our program.


The week was filled with pitch development, practice, feedback and refinement. We presented on Wednesday to each other and live streamed the presentation to our mentors for critique. On Friday, we presented again and had some folks, Bob Pelley and Andrew Ray, from Innovacorp in to offer up their feedback.
