“We need women role models... What does a ten-year-old want? She wants a woman role model she can aspire to- and to me, that's what's missing right now. We don't have enough women that are role models for them” – Eli Fathi (CEO, Mindbridge AI)
On February 12, 2020, students from the Faculty and the university presented their innovative business ideas and plans to a panel of expert judges from the Ottawa community. Three teams brought home prizes that will help to kick start their start-up ideas.
