I had options and needed to make a quick decision about five months before my program. Ultimately, I wanted an experience that would give me skills and insight into the growing startup culture. I didn't want an experience I could get just "anywhere."
Start Me Up offers unique internships that get you out of your comfort zone. This program allowed me to network, test my skills, learn new assets vital to my understanding of startups and introduced new topics. I especially loved seeing other startups pitch their app to a crowd. It was really interesting and being in the startup culture allowed you to immerse yourself with other people from around the world with different points of view.
