Last year the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Engineering hosted their inaugural Beaver’s Den—think Dragons’ Den but with a faculty mascot twist. This Saturday, the beavers are back.
Brave engineering students will pitch a panel of potential investors. By the end of the day the Beavers will have invested upwards of $200K.
Like CBC’s popular Dragons’ Den show, the Beaver’s Den saw students pitch to a panel of investors ready to invest and mentor. The second annunal event is the culmination of an entrepreneur-in-residence program started earlier in the school year by engineering alumnus Michael Sikorsky.
