    Accelerator leader, Luni Libes, Seattle
  • “International education can be a critical foundational experience for an aspiring entrepreneur. It provides exposure to new markets, new businesses, and new ways of solving problems. Whether you end up working in the U.S. or globally, international education can transform your worldview and provide three things essential for any startup founder: resilience, openness to new ideas, and empathy.”

    Startup founder, Dahm Choi
  • “People have a lot of bright ideas but they need skills, organization, guidance - and confidence.”

    Startup founder, Phillip Brunnbauer
  • “If you go to Harvard, half the class is involved in a startup. If you don’t, you miss out on the close network of inspiring entrepreneurs, and all the information you need to set up a company.”
