Participant Testimonials

I was able to reset my old mindset and gain new perspectives and insights.

I usually have little contact with startups. I'm glad that I was able to learn about the backgrounds and efforts of startup companies. This program made me want to discover more unconventional ideas.

Not just sitting through lectures, but having discussions and competitions allowed me to apply what I learned into practice.

It was a valuable experience in understanding the importance of firsthand experiences, acquiring new viewpoints and values, and comprehending the tendency of my own outputs.
