MindSumo Contest

My name is Keaton Swett, and I'm a co-founder of *MindSumo* (<> ). We are a marketplace where companies post real world challenges for college students to solve. Students get the chance to prove their skills, win cash prizes, and connect with companies that use MindSumo to actively recruit for jobs and internships.

We are anxious to include Waterloo students, and give them the chance to solve challenges for innovative companies. I was hoping you could forward this opportunity to students in your department who might be interested in participating. Our challenges (<>) have proven to be engaging for students from Stanford, Harvard, MIT, Berkeley, Johns Hopkins, Yale, and other schools, and our student winners have benefited by earning money, and getting jobs and internships.
