Microsoft Imagine Cup 2012: Call for mentors

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 31-Oct-2011 18:45

I just got word the top 25 New Zealand teams have been selected for Microsoft NZ Imagine Cup 2012. More importantly, Microsoft is looking for industry mentors, who will work with team to guide them and share their industry experience.

The Microsoft Imagine Cup is a global student technology competition that encourages students to tackle the toughest problems facing the world today while applying the latest technologies and networking with the IT industry. More than 350,000 university students from 100 countries competed in 2011, and we are recruiting for New Zealand teams for the 2012 competition!

Once again, we are looking for Industry Mentors to work with student teams by guiding them and sharing valuable industry experience. In return, as a Mentor, you get to identify and work with the best young and up-and-coming IT talent in NZ. Industry Mentors also benefit from gaining positive exposure with their contribution to students, IT industry and wider community.
