Hi Marc,

Your venture pitch is compelling, straightforward, simple (easy-to-follow, not overwhelming) and reflects your championship well. You used a beautiful, simple layout for your slide deck presentation with just the right amount of information per slide to keep me engaged without feeling overwhelmed by information. As for the venture itself, what a great idea! Cultural awareness and understanding is so important, especially in a world affected by globalization. I can see NeighborhoodAR increasing empathy and other soft skills like ethnorelativism and intercultural competency. In a world that is connected digitally it can be so easy to become disconnected from what is right in front of us. NeighbourhoodAR can reconnect us to place. For a previous MET course, I did research on place-based learning and how technology like AR can enhance PBL and connect us to place even more than we can without technology. I also see great value in this tool for the indigenous population. From an EVA standpoint and one that focuses on social impact first, profit second, I would absolutely recommend this venture as a smart investment. And I hope you get what you need to make it happen.
