The pace is picking up at the Oasis Farmery as our days in the Summer Institute Foundry Program slowly check themselves off the calendar. Andrew and I are starting to gear up for our final cohort presentation on July 30 at the Cedar Tree Café, and the process of doing so is reaffirming the significant roles all the Foundry mentors and fellow entrepreneurs are playing in our development.
Just today, Gracen made the bicycle trek, full camera gear in tow, from her place on the South side of Fredericton to the Oasis Farmery on the North side to shoot some photos for our final presentation. And earlier this week, Philip Leblanc took the time to put the final touches on our logo, ensuring every last curve, splatter, and colour coincided with our vision for the company. Without these people, and the many others Andrew’s mentioned in the past, this company wouldn’t look close to what we’re now so proud of.
Propinquity to and cooperation with the right people has made us realize how important it is to bring on new teammates for the exciting year ahead. This week we sat down to speak with two potential candidates for the Oasis Farmery team and were blown away by the enthusiasm we saw for the Oasis Farmery model we’ve built. If those meetings are any reflection of the type of people the Oasis Farmery is going to attract as we continue to expand the team, expanding the impact of this company could happen much more rapidly than first anticipated… and we’re looking forward to it.
If you’re interested in a night of great food, great people, and great ideas, get your name on the list for the final Foundry presentation at the end of the month where we will present our progress with the other great companies in our cohort.
