We came. We saw. We liked we saw.
"Get Connected" was the perfect opportunity for Team Ribit to scope out the student and entrepreneur scenes in Victoria's second largest city.
Against the backdrop of the hallowed Cats oval, we ran a speed networking session in tandem with ICT Geelong's "Skilling the Bay" event. Bright sparks from Deakin University and Gordon Tafe shared their pitching genius with businesses representing industries as diverse as consulting, food manufacturing, hospitality and wearable technology.
Both sides showed plenty of appreciation for each other, evident by the furious exchange of resumes and business cards.
It's not just the Cats who are poised for success this year. Judging from what we saw last Tuesday, big things are brewing in the Corio Bay area.
Keep an eye out.
