After the competition, Dr. Chi Sheh closed the ceremony with the following wish:

"I hope that this Sustainable Investing Idea Competition and other activities like this one in the future will encourage more interdisciplinary collaboration among our students here at UWest. I know many of our students at UWest care deeply about the various social and environmental problems that exist around us, but lack an avenue to channel their energies and creativity to take their ideas into the real world and making a lasting difference. The Sustainable Investing Club may just be the way to help make that possible here at UWest on a wider scale".
