If you’re trying to make a career change, the power of the Startup Institute network is invaluable.

Why did you attend Startup Institute?

After spending seven years working in finance, I decided I wanted to pursue a more entrepreneurial career. I attended the Startup Institute with the goal of expanding my network so that I could more effectively make this career change.

Is there one experience that stands out for you from your time at SI?

My favorite experience from SI was the Talent Expo. It was such a unique opportunity to be able to pitch my story and career interests in front of a group of potential employers. The Talent Expo day led to lots of conversations with a variety of interesting companies.

What makes SI different than other educational experiences or classes you’ve taken?

SI is different from other educational experiences due to its intensive nature. During a relatively short 8-week period, you become completely immersed in the startup ecosystem. It’s amazing what you can learn and the experiences you’ll have during this condensed timeframe.

What is one thing you’d want people to know about SI?

If you’re trying to make a career change, the power of the Startup Institute network is invaluable. You will get exposure to companies large and small and in a variety of industries. That, for me, was the biggest takeaway from the program.
