Co-Founder of HappyFunCorp Will Schenk on the Entrepreneurial Process

"Schenk unequivocally believes that things like social networks, relationships and partnerships are the most important criteria for success, followed closely by timing, in addition to market execution, discipline, and of course, focus. Having the best, most creative, or most revolutionary product idea is futile if the other elements are missing, and he believes this is one of the ways entrepreneurs often get led astray." - Vrinda Ahuja

Empowerment through Fashion

“Think about what you would want to see. Remove yourself from the situation and try to look at it with an objective view. Ask yourself: ‘if I were the customer and I would be viewing this product, would I engage with it?’ And that’s when you are going to create the best content, the best product.” - Lucie Pasquier

Disruption and Anxiety – CORE Impulse

"Updates, innovation are safe. Who was ever actually there to refuse cheaper, larger, smaller, more convenient products? We don’t fear reforming, reorganizing or re-educating ourselves for the updates on the horizon, we fear having new technology blindsiding us so completely that doing any of these things — preparing — is useless in the first place."

Flip: the future of real estate? – CORE Impulse

The way we live today has changed remarkably from the way we did fifty years ago. People are much more global and transient, constantly shifting from living in one place to another, from their roles at work, in school, or with family. The way our world has developed calls for more flexible living arrangements.

A Game Made to be Beautiful

Deaner’s journey, for lack of a better word, is unconventional. At an early age, he realized his passion for music when he saw the drummer of a band at a concert and thought to himself, “I want to be like that.” As he got older, he was able to turn his passion for music into a career: after college, Deaner toured with Kelly Clarkson’s band as a drummer, and also toured internationally with his own band, Plus/Minus. This love for music did not just stem from an appreciation of music itself, but also a desire to create, to create something original, elegant, and beautiful.

LibreTaxi: an Uber for rural, disadvantaged communities

Every day, millions of people around the world in megacities like New York, São Paulo, Kolkata, Tokyo, and Dhaka click on a bit-and-atom logo on their smartphones to hail a ride by Uber. Even citizens of smaller municipalities like Nizhny Novgorod, Russia or Milan, Italy can access Uber, or its largest competitor Lyft, at a moment’s notice. In fact, we urbanites have grown so dependent on Uber and Lyft that when these services aren’t available, chaos ensues.

As STEM-related knowledge and skills become increasingly crucial in the modern workplace, the proper training and education is necessary for students to take advantage of exciting technology career opportunities.
