Hacker Exchange HEX Sprint

Overall, I was very impressed with the quality of experience we were able to create on the weeklong sprint with HEX, especially given that we were fully remote.

The staff were supportive and offered valuable feedback. We were introduced to a plethora of powerful tools and got a rapid education in entrepreneurial thinking and strategy. The content from guest speakers was good overall, and some of the guest speakers were very good. The networking opportunities are fantastic.

If I had to order the most value elements of the program, they would be:
introduction to awesome resources
excellent networking opportunities
good general entrepreneurial education

What would you improve about this program?
There should be more coordination in the lead-up to the Sprint - groups were created seemingly at random, but I think groups should be chosen intentionally, and there should be more thought devoted to developing a great idea from the start.

Amazing

Well coordinated and organised. Fell in love with the content provided. Learnt a lot from this program and met amazing brains from around the world. Looking forward to attending more such programs from the organisation. Also, if there is an opportunity in future to join the organising team, would love to put my efforts from the team as it was amazing how smooth the program was carried out. Non technical issues whatsoever. Also, this helped me make new.connections on linkedin and helped me broaden my connections

Take as much as you can from this program as this will help you in every aspect of your life.
