We’d like to welcome Daniel Boltinsky, our new student intern, to the team at Entrevestor. Daniel is a student at University of King’s College in Halifax and his first piece for us is running today.

We’ve asked Daniel to report once every two weeks on startups coming out of the region’s universities. His stories will run the gamut from students starting a venture in their dorm to medtech companies being spun out of millions of dollars of research.

This is, of course, an important component of the Atlantic Canadian innovation segment, and we’ve found Daniel to be a real go-getter who’s eager to learn and has a truly international perspective.

Daniel is studying mainly languages, including German and Arabic. He worked as an intern for the Hindustan Times in Delhi last summer, where he wrote for the national news and research desks. He has contributed to a number of publications in Halifax, and is currently the news editor of the Dalhousie Gazette.
