What our entrepreneurs have to say about hosting interns …
It was a complete pleasure for all of our team to have Gabor work with us. He had a huge impact on the company (technically, culturally, all around), and we are sad to see him leave.
What our interns have to say about their experiences …
Life changing. These two words fall short to express what the Silicon Valley experience has been like for me. What has my day to day life been like? A tremendous exposure to a lot of innovative and disruptive minds that I will be eternally grateful to for challenging me every day to bring out the best version of myself on a personal and professional level. This experience would not have been possible without the program, to which I am grateful for the opportunity to meet many people who passed on their knowledge, their passion and to whom I owe part of the person and professional that I am today. Special mention also to the company I worked with, Berkeley Lights, where I learned to think big and the importance of having a good team to achieve your goals. Thanks for everything Silicon Valley, hope to see you again soon!
