Monthly Newsletter – December 2016

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
A huge thank you to all the teams, supporters and judges that made our first pitch and pizza of the year a great success! We had our largest number of applicants ever. Mark your calendars now for the next BUzz Lab pitch & pizza on February 3rd, where we hope to hear pitch all the teams we just couldn’t fit in on November 11th and many more.
We also thank the mentors who gave up their Saturday to be part of the Fall Startup Bootcamp. We received great feedback from the mentors and the students, which lets us make sure that we keep the Bootcamp on point for our next intake of startup entrepreneurs.
On November 11th, the BUzz Lab co-sponsored the Art + Business Symposium. This was an all day conversation about the increasing overlap of arts, commerce and social impact. We sent Ergeta Muca, one of our interns, to get the lowdown for us. Read about her experiences below.
Don’t forget to come along to BUVA’s Demo Day at the Terrace Lounge at the GSU on December 8th.
We are looking forward to seeing you at some, or all, of our events and make sure you join our online entrepreneurship community by clicking here to be part of the BUzz Lab Hive!!!!!!
We wish you all a great end to your year and Happy Holidays!
Warmest regards,
Professor Ian Mashiter
Director of the BUzz Lab
