"Connecting people with a common goal"

My greatest opportunity this year
To work with like-minded determined students and work together towards execution of entrepreneurial ideas, while having fun in the process!

Greatest obstacle I tackled
Finding a balance between my academic life and my ECE Students responsibilities. The most difficult part of being a part-time board member.

Biggest learning lesson of the year
Be transparent, communicative and give honest feedback to the ones you are working with.

Why you wouldn’t do a regular faculty board
Regular faculty boards have a rigid structure and tradition, whereas in ECE Students, you can experiment and try out new projects and ideas. This is especially encouraged and gives you a first-hand experience of working in a startup environment.
