This program was an amazing experience. It helped to demystify the “magic” and hype of Silicon Valley, bringing real knowledge to understand how and why this place is what it is.

Since my business is my life, Mind the Bridge has been life changing. It has greatly improved my way of approaching business in terms of value creation and solid foundations.

The program is amazing, I’ve seen people with a negative attitude to risks changing drastically their attitude in 20 days and becoming tireless “startuppers”.Mind the Bridge is the fertile terrain where talents grow.
