On June 26, Pycap CEO Stuart Browne, Pycap Operations Manager Amelia Dookhee and two interns travelled to Hanover, Grey County, Ontario. The purpose of the trip was for Stuart to instruct the region’s government Economic Development Officers on how they can advise early stage companies in seeking funding for growth and development.
After the presentation the Pycap team received a tour of Grey County and learned about the many different industries and innovations domiciled in the region. These include companies that utilize artificial intelligence and internet of things to farm trout, a fully automated dairy farm equipped with robots to milk cows and detect health concerns, and ancillary businesses serving the nearby company Bruce Power, one of the worlds’ largest nuclear power plants.
After a successful semester of Pycap Academy running its Venture Capital & Private Equity Course at the Schulich School of Business, Pycap CEO Stuart Browne and Operations Manager Amelia Dookhee participated in the convocation ceremony to congratulate their graduating students.
The Pycap Team was honoured to be a part of this experience and to have a positive impact on the students. Receiving endorsements such as “Your class ignited my passion in Venture Capital” and “I learned so much and loved the real world experience” as well as a course evaluation above the faculty mean helped validate the curriculum for Pycap and encouraged them to continue for the next semester.
