Take part in UC Berkeley’s Berkeley Methods of Entrepreneurship 2019!

 

Aalto Ventures Program is excited to be heading back to Berkeley in January! We are sending up to four students to take part in UC Berkeley’s Berkeley Methods of Entrepreneurship from January 14 – 18th, 2019!

 

Last year’s trip to BMoE was fantastic. This intense 4 ½ day venture workshop, held at UC Berkeley, is a fantastic introduction to the ideas, methods, and people of Silicon Valley. During the program, participants will attend sessions that weave together lectures and interactive game-based exercises, receive one-on-one mentoring from Sutardja Center faculty and industry experts; and learn in a collaborative environment.
