"My favorite part about being a student at Startup Institute was working with brilliant individuals who were like-minded and there for the same reasons. I made more meaningful personal and professional relationships in 8 weeks than I did working professionally in Chicago for 4 years!"

- Josh Moyer, Product & Design Alum 2013
