Visit to du Pole

Today we visited the Pôle Universitaire Léonard de Vinci, which involved at first a two hour presentation by Professor Lima (a professor at the 
Pôle university) on the international perception of French culture. It was very interesting to listen to Professor Lima and his way of explaining it, even though my jet lag and slight lack of sleep were bringing me down a bit!

We were then treated to a complementary meal at the university's cafe which was nice of them. After we finished eating and having our coffees, we proceeded back up for our next two hour presentation.

This time we got to listen to three different entrepreneurial ventures from four students, all supported by business incubators, presented by the creators themselves- students of the university. It was interesting and exciting to hear these people talk about their ideas for their business and their plans for it.

Once they were done with their presentations we were then able to ask them questions and they also asked us a few questions regarding where we are from. Overall this was a beneficial and enjoyable experience.
