  • Muhammad Saad J: Spending a week at MIT with business people from 40 countries was very inspiring. It is fast pace with lots of great content that we use today, tomorrow and for the rest of our career. The theory is great with good speakers and experts but the practice is even better. We were always ready to work hard, play hard while creating new relationship with people from all around the world who could potentially be your next venture partner!. Overall the program was an unforgettable experience which always amazed me that how have I done that !! Despite epic snowfalls and harsh blizzard conditions brought by Winter Storm we enjoyed captivating lectures, guest speakers, workshops, discussion and pitching, as every waking minute is used to fill us with knowledge then test it to breaking point.  It was a week of new knowledge, generating ideas, technical visits, planning, preparation of business plan and mostly experimentation. The lecturers bring a nice mix of industry startup experience and theoretical research. We met some legendary players in the MIT ecosystem. Its an experience I will never forget.
