Testimonials from team members

«The output is not measurable in money. The value is deeply personal and my take-away is the learning from people, their ideas, the process; you learn what innovation really means and get a deeper, ‘behind the scenes’ view» - Mario, PhD, IIMT (2015) 


«I try to apply the philosophy of ‘never start a business just to make money, start a business to make the difference’. I feel I CAN make a difference in IC. I also get a chance to 'debate' with people coming from not only the business world but also with students from different disciplines. On a personal level, I enjoy a sense of satisfaction by organizing and promoting the club’s activities, through networking, improving of my English and making new friends. Furthermore, volunteering in an association, adds positive points to your CV!» - Francesca, MBA in Entrepreneurship, HEG (2015) 

«Organizing events and interacting with people from different institutions helps me develop a valuable network and new skills. Working together with highly motivated people is a lot of fun !» - Manuel,  EMBA, IIMT (2014)
