Grow it farther. So you managed to fit your brain back inside your head after Summit was done. Nice work. Let’s stretch it all out again at the Blue Paper Project sessions, a series of meetings after Summit that puts you back with the Yodas. You can tap extra mentorship and guidance to help you actually make your project a reality. Get primed in how to pitch ideas. Learn digital storytelling. Master Business Model Canvas or Design Thinking. Boost your financial literacy so you don’t make the same dumb mistakes you’ve watched other people make. Get ready. Get stronger.
If you attended Summit 2017, your ticket gives you access to the Blue Paper Project Mentorship program, where you can choose up to 12 sessions of deeper learning with our partners. Bring your questions, and breathe life into your ideas with additional mentorship and guidance in the areas where you need it most. Our partners have a ton of wisdom and lived experience to share with you — and it’s all here for the asking. Accelerate your ideas and move faster toward your dreams with the following sessions:
pitching your ideas to inspire people to support you — UVic’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business;
telling your story for the digital and social media space — Fish Eye Project and Royal Roads University;
how to start a non-profit, business or social enterprise with Business Model Canvas — UVic’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business;
how to keep your head above water (aka financial literacy) — Coast Capital Savings;
solve complex problems and deliver the best to your customers through Design Thinking — Chris O’Connor of the Royal BC Museum; and
telling your story for TV and film — Shaw TV.
Right?? Give your head a shake. That’s a massive whack of tips and tricks from people in the social enterprise and business space. And you know what they say about building your network by getting to know people…
Our partners host the Blue Paper Project Mentorship sessions, so you’ll be working in spaces like the Royal BC Museum, the University of Victoria Innovation Centre, Royal Roads University and others. We’ll be rolling out the session schedule shortly after Summit. (After we catch our breath.)
