This gathering will also be broadcast live via our YouTube Channel.

We know your dance cards this month are pretty full with holiday gatherings, but you’ll want to make time for December’s TecSocial, featuring Cape Breton’s UIT immersion program for start-up founders.

The intensive 11-month pilot initiative started in September and is teaching students the technology and business skills leading up to the launch of their own product and start-up. The open-source curriculum has been designed by proven entrepreneurs and technology professionals from around the globe.

We’re going to “beam” in Gavin Uhma to tell us about his inspiration for UIT, which he founded as a partnership with the CBU Shannon School of Business. Plus, UIT curriculum developer and instructor Mike Ouellette will explain what goes on at the program, and a few UIT students and mentors will talk about their experience so far.

For info about UIT, visit – or just join us this Thursday!

TecSocial is a monthly meeting for those with an interest in technology and entrepreneurship. It is a free event and is open to the public. A cash bar will be available and door prizes and appetizers (limited quantities) are compliments of our partners, Innovacorp and Membertou Trade & Convention Centre.
