Hello everyone! On April 22nd, Earth Day,
people all around the world will march for science. It will be a celebration of
discovery, of reason, but it will also be a direct response to the recent
devaluing and disparagement of scientific thought and progress.

 

We are organizing to get as many Cambridge
people over to London for the march. Not just scientists, but anyone who values
evidence-based decision making. Join us!

– How to consolidate your work and
support a Cambridge Startup at the same time –

 

Do you use Gmail, Hermes Webmail,
Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Skype etc all in parallel?

Then you’ll be familiar with spending
an unnecessary amount of time trying to navigate these disconnected silos,
logging in and out in search of content or chasing alerts.

https://livil.co/  is a Cambridge
start-up founded recently by an alumni and a professor. The concept is to
integrate all of your existing tools that you use for your work (email, file
sharing, calendar etc) into one central dashboard.

Your content from the tools gets
organized centrally, rather than randomly sitting in dispersed siloes. You can
then filter the content and see only what is relevant for the task at hand.
Also, you can connect information stemming from different sources: Attach a
Google Doc to a Hermes email in one click for example, or save it in one folder
together with documents from Box, OneDrive or Dropbox. 

Curious to see how it works? The team at
livil is offering every Cambridge student exclusively one year free
usage
.

Just pre-register your interest with
your @cam.ac.uk
address at https://livil.co/invite/ before
the end of the month to qualify.

Global Case Study Competition

Candidates are asked to register teams of
three students to take part in a global pitch competition from teams all around
the world. Each team will be asked to put together a stock pitch presentation
and supporting data; these will be assessed by Point72, who will select eight
final teams to receive an all-expenses paid weekend to the US to receive input
and presentational advice from members of the business, before presenting their
final case. Finalists are also guaranteed an interview for next year’s Summer
Academy Programme, Point72’s flagship internship programme.

 

Academy Summit

Point72 will be hosting a summit conference
in May of this year to bring together students from across the US and Europe to
learn more about what it takes to be a successful portfolio manager from some
of the most successful in the business. Successful candidates will be selected
to attend a day with the team at Point72’s Stamford, Connecticut offices, and
all reasonable travel expenses and accommodation will be covered.

 

These opportunities are open to all
candidates who still have two years of study left (i.e. are in the first year
of a three-year degree or the second year of a four-year degree) and I thought
they may well be opportunities that you’d want to notify your members of.
Please do let me know if you’d be happy to send out an email notification or
include in your next newsletter – deadlines are coming up on 9th
March and 2nd April respectively

Bee Movie Screening

“According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway, because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.”

Come along to the St John’s College Beekeepers Society screening of Bee Movie at 7pm on the 1st March for an evening of bee-inspired fun – all are welcome, so invite your friends! 

If ya like jazz, ya’ll love this.
Further details can be found here.
