It has been an exciting stretch this last few months with the latest round of the Humber New Ventures Fund and the growing emphasis on entrepreneurship at Humber. The most exciting has been the energy that the students have been putting into the process. Sitting at the Humber Hawknest startup weekend, I am impressed at how far a student driven event can go.
Congratulations to the Hawknest team and the Humber Student Federation on a great event!
I am now about a week into the China part of the sabbatical and am starting to get a proper sense of the place. The most important thing so far, and this has come to me from numerous sources, is the need to look at the place with fresh eyes. There are many things that are different in China, and I can already see how assumptions carried over from the outside can make you miss the point, or misinterpret. Fresh eyes can be difficult, it requires after all suspension of judgment. But fresh eyes are one of the main reasons that I am traveling in the first place.
The excitement and optimism is palpable and I am enjoying all the fresh experiences.
