2012 UWI Venture Challenge is underway!!

Dear Alumnus,

The race is on for the coveted award and the honour of representing UWI in the finals in Atlanta in 2013.

This year the competition has expanded beyond the MSB and is now promoted to the entire University. We hope that in years to come our scientists will team with our business persons to get to really world cutting-edge standards.
We see this next step as being really important in developing unique solutions, inventions, and world-class businesses to propel Jamaica into a new growth path.

So far 12 teams have entered, and 7 of these are from the newly merged undergraduate school. This is a most exciting development as our business students will develop important skills to tackle the world.

We have had great success in attracting mentors in relevant fields and we will be meeting and briefing those persons today, Thursday November 1, 2012. The teams will meet their mentors on Monday, and after that as the commentators would say, “they’re off and running”.

More news to follow next week, giving a furlong by furlong commentary on the Venture Capital Challenge for UWI Thoroughbreds.

Best regards,

James Moss-Solomon
Executive in Residence.
