The format for this event is modeled after the popular television series, “Dragon’s Den.” During the presentations, seasoned judges will ask student groups questions to assess their potential for creating value as a business venture.
This year, our Bissett students were the grand winners. Rudi Schiebel BBA-INBU won first prize $4000 and audience favorite (A dinner with the HKCBA Calgary Chapter Executives). Additionally Brad Willamson BBA-MKT (INBU and ENTR minors) won the chance to attend the VA Angels Bootcamp and $1200.
Miranda Mountain, fourth year BBA student majoring in Human Resources with minors in international business and business society, gave her presentation, “Addressing uncertainties in hydraulic fracturing: a review of hydraulic fracturing management literature” at the February 25 Institute for Environmental Sustainability (IES) Seminar. Miranda has been a research assistant to Dr. Connie Van der Byl since June, 2014 on the Canadian Water Network funded study, “Hydraulic Fracturing and Water Knowledge Integration: Landscape Impacts”. This research project is led by Dr. Michael Quinn, Director of IES, and includes academics from across Canada.
