SYNC is a model for relationship-building meetings between the business community and University students in Uppsala. The event was held at base 10 in Uppsala and was hosted by entrepreneurs Acadamy and Almi.
The event startet with a small informative introduction for all students. Thereafter all attending students were expected to do a short pitch of themselves to arouse interest for the participating companies.
I felt my pitch went really well and that I was able to deliver the message I was aiming for.
Following the pitch parade was a “speed dating” session with all the companies. Over a coffe we had the chance to ask all questions we wanted to the different representatives from the company’s. 3 students and 3 representatives were seated at the same table for 10 minutes to discuss. After 10 minutes the companies swapped to different tables.
I thought the event was very worthwhile and fun. Everyone attending represented interesting companies. It was also good for me to practise my rhetorical skills
