09 Aug Innovation Jam
During UBC Social Enterprise Club’s annual Innovation Jam, held in partnership with Coast Capital Savings Innovation Hub, five social ventures were selected to present their business and challenges to a group of passionate student changemakers. The social enterprises included Arbutus Medical, Food Waste Recyclers, Brands for the Heart, Time Auction, and Wize Monkey. These entrepreneurs portrayed a specific obstacle their companies were facing and then attendees had the opportunity to team up with an entrepreneur in a small group of other students to break down the obstacle and create innovative solutions that will create real impact. Not only did students get the chance to collaborate and create solutions for real life problems, but this Innovation Jam also provided students with the opportunity to make lasting connections with like-minded individuals and social entrepreneurs!
