Hear from past students
Meeting so many successful people who are pursuing their dream has pushed me and motivated me to do the same.
Today, Jean is a masters student at Cornell and the founder and CEO of Titan Analytics.
I entered this class with minimal knowledge on how to start a business, let alone come up with an idea or product to pursue. Jenna took us through every step of the startup process and always had such a positive attitude.
Every class, from human-centered design on day two...to a class about identifying and chasing personal strengths, to the final classes about marketing and funding, gave another glimpse into what entrepreneurship is like and how successful entrepreneurs think.
Now I have a lot of people that can help me out with anything I need. Having all this people around me just make me realize how much I’m going to miss them.
The things I found most valuable this summer would have to be all the pitching activities and ice breakers, as it was a great way to boost my confidence. I am also grateful for meeting all of you!
Networking opportunities were amazing and valuable to helping us expand our knowledge and meet different types of people.
The one thing that I found the most valuable was on how to start a business, I never had any experience on how to do this but I learned a lot from this program and now I know how to.
Every person you meet can help you and is open to help you, which is something I really appreciate. You give something and you get something back.
My favorite part is seeing what good team dynamics looks like. I have been a part of many other teams and the teams are not always ideal. But here it’s perfect.
