“You’re encouraged to create your own destiny here. I wanted to work in a startup so I’ve been doing start up things within Philips.
In my first year in Eindhoven, I organized a workshop for entrepreneurship. We learned how to pitch, work with incubators, venture building etc. I made some great connections that led to my getting involved with some of our ventures in Africa. We researched how to enable social entrepreneurship and help set up micro engineers using Philips products. I also have just been part of our 3 month Breakthrough Acceleration Program. That was a really cool experience.”
