Winning the GIC (May 26)

Un-be-lievable! I won the Global Impact Competition 2016 from Singularity University the Netherlands. The winner of the competition is allowed to participate in the 10-week global solutions program at Singularity University worth $50.000.

For those of you who don’t know what Singularity University (SU) is. Their mission is to launch entrepreneurial initiatives by leveraging exponential technologies. SU is located on the NASA campus in Silicon Valley, right next to the Google headquarters. Really cool! For now, there is a lot on my plate to get everything done by the time I will leave. A short blog for now, but I’ll be back.
