When I applied for this programme I didn't expect it to be that insightful in how people actually form a startup, what to consider, the processes they go through just to get to the final pitch and doing that just within 5 days seemed impossible to me at first. But we actually did it! It was a lot of hard work but it was a great experience and I enjoyed it so much. My team was absolutely amazing and the HEX members were really supportive. I loved the talks and how the stories spoke to us. At first, I thought I'd be overwhelmed by the task at hand but they gave us great guidance on how to approach everything but still leaving us a lot of things to figure out on our own so we could work independently. I grew a lot through this experience and made lovely friends down under.
