Ventures Operations Lead

Our External team is the driving force behind the scenes that enables the progress of our projects and team by; securing funding through grants/proposals, developing new relationships with potential business advisors, and operating small for-profit businesses. We’re a group of scrappy, highly driven, performance-focused individuals who ensure that the rest of our team has all the resources that they need in order to help make our community a better place.

The External team's goals this year include:

  1. Developing a competition fund to help our team pay for the 3 major competitions we attend every school year.
  2. Securing at least one advisor for every single one of our projects, and VP teams.
  3. Launch a minimum of 3 new ventures. These are the small businesses that our team operates year-round in order to help fund all of our endeavours
