Why I chose ESTEEM:

ESTEEM is the best place to meet like-minded people, get entrenched in a high volume of resources and connections very quickly, and ultimately set yourself up for the highest chances of success. I aim to do all of the above while building my own business. I will spend 11 months accelerating my business and come out with an MS from Notre Dame on the other side. Who could ask for more?

My capstone project and why I am excited about it:

While at ESTEEM, I am building a company to solve the major disorganization and charging issues with the shared e-scooter industry. Because these shared devices promise a much brighter future for transportation, I'm excited to do my part to promote their adoption and sustainability.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

I'm looking forward to an opportunity to pursue my company full time after graduating.

What I like to do when I’m not working:

When I'm not working on business, I enjoy exercising, building random things, and pairing wine with deeply philosophical conversations.

And, finally:

ESTEEM = lifelong friendships you may not be able to find elsewhere (and I'm only 6 weeks in).
