Culture of innovation, mentorship, and fun.
The intersection of innovation and education.
These are some of the things we were looking for, and that’s exactly what we are finding thanks to the people behind Datventure; Tomás Ratia, Sagar Desai, Kristofer Mondlaine, Ricardo Garcia, Javier Rivera (take a look at this @datventureguys).
First, Krash.io, where we live here in Boston. No time for landing, no time to rest :), directly out of your confort zone, where the magic happens. It is a great place to live and have contact with other entrepreneurs, where you can work, learn, do your workouts (yeah, my living room is a Gym), watch some nerdy movies or be badly defeated by Mr Sagar Desai in pingpong.
Then there is Harvard. Let start with the Harvard Innovation Center, WOW. There is where we work with thousand of post-its and Datventure. Yes, basically they think the only thing you need to stand a session of 8 hours making gantt charts is sugar. Luckily, Kris knows that beer is all that the body of an adult man needs :).
The next level is when you go to your first class at Harvard. It has a great atmosphere, so inspiring classes, it is an awesome place.
Again, on the business side of this experience, insane schedule; two days at the Microsoft NERD building, networking at the VentureCafe, MIT events, meeting with advisors, potential mentors, Efron… yep, all this in the same WEEK.
