I was unfortunately only able to attend the second day of the Startup Experience at Colgate University. However, I can safely say that the one day I was there I was inspired, not only by Henrik, but the by the people that were also participating in the program. As an entrepreneur it is always a delight to see other people who have the same passions and the same interests in changing the world that you do.
This past summer I worked at a venture capital firm in New York City that invests in small tech startups. I was able to meet many of the CEOs of the portfolio companies. One of the most inspiring, and life changing experiences was feeling the passion that was radiating from these individuals. THAT is what I felt at Startup XP. I have been in a past ventures that have failed and am currently in a new one. If I had known what I know now through Startup XP I would have been sure to have made further progress in my first venture. THIS IS A PROGRAM THAT ALL ENTREPRENEURS SHOULD EXPERIENCE. The many different aspects of finding and solving a problem are clearly laid out and well contrived.
The experience was not only educational but so much fun. I learned a lot from this past weekend and it did not even feel like we were doing work. I am glad to have spent my Sunday doing it. It is an investment in knowledge and a way of thinking.
I wish the best of luck to anyone trying to start a business. It is a risky business and venture but hopefully you take this program, and you will learn to thrive.
