VeloCity Venture Fund: The Video
If you read here you know that I am a BIG BIG fan of the whole Velocity meme up at the University of Waterloo….and their recent foray into startup funding has really caught my own attention….and others too!
At their recent Velocity Venture Funds contest, a couple of weeks back, the first two winners of $25,000 each were announced and they can be seen smiling right here.
And there’s more too….a new video that outlines the various Venture Funds contest entrants and the play by play of the whole project…including, I might add a nice cameo by Ted Livingston, who helped fund the whole thing with his $1,000,000 contribution to expand support for the Velocity student entrepeneurs.
You may also remember that I reported here on my own “challenge” to our McMaster University, by sending emails to both Paul Bates (of DeGroote Biz School fame) and Dr. Benson Honig, the prof who holds the “Teresa Cascioli Chair in Entrepreneurial Leadership” at McMaster….ah…leadership…that’s the ticket, eh!
So….what - you might ask…well, like all damn good ideas, this one needs some support, a push or two and yes, even some begging I’d suspect…so I am challenging one and all Hamilton members of our business community to come here and comment on same….let us know that you’re “in” and “how” you might be able to help too….
