First year computer science student Matt Duff has won the £500 Summerbuzz prize after pitching – Dragon’s Den style – to sponsor, Kinetic Solutions.
Sixteen students from the School of Computing and Kent Business School applied for this prize that rewards the best summer plan in terms of employability skills. Five students from both the Canterbury and Medway campuses were shortlisted, and had to pitch their plan and answer challenging questions by the Kinetic Solutions ‘Dragons’ – Managing Director Chris Wildsmith, Technical Director (and Kent alumnus) Rob Turner and Sales Manager Emma Sinfield.
Matt Duff’s plan of a trip to California to pursue his interest in eSports won him the prize, but with the caveat of blogging his activities during the summer. More details to follow on Matt’s blog…!
