Advice & hacks
Before the challenge We advise you to register for at least 1 information session and ask all your questions. There are also webinars if you can not move. All these dates are announced in the newsletter and in the Facebook page of the Coopérathon.
Also, talk with former participants. They are often present at the information sessions. Ask them what mistakes to avoid, what tips they have to share with you.
During the challenge Although the workshops are all optional, we strongly advise you to attend those on Saturday. There will be time allotted to advance your project with your team.
Do not hesitate to consult your mentor. He is there to help you.
Before the Pitch (Semi-finals) It’s a moment that is very stressful for some teams, so take the time to relax. The Cooperathon is an experience, all for a good cause. We all contribute to make it great.
Take advantage of the Pitch Clinic offered during Sprint 4, that’s the final sprint on October 26th (consult cooperathon.ca/calendar) to practice in front of a crowd of Pitch coaches.
Be natural and convincing. Get to the point and impress the jury!
We connect passion, talent, communities and academics. Together we develop a socially responsible future.
