The moment of truth arrived for our Class of 2019 in the Executive MBA in Innovation & Business Creation on 6 August, 2017: It was time to present their team projects with their unique business concepts, on which they had been working for the past months, in front of an expert jury.
The jury consisted of experts from the fields of venture capital, corporate innovation and business design and provided participants with hands-on advice and valuable feedback on how to finalize their business ideas into polished concepts.
Overall, jury members were delighted by how far the start-up ideas had already progressed in progressive business segments such as wearables, med tech and food. Participants are already working on implementing these insights before presenting their business ideas on their visit to UC Berkeley. Because as the next milestone on their journey towards Executive MBA certification, the Class of 2019 is currentely visiting Berkeley, California for a number of lectures and visits to innovative companies in one of the world’s most vibrant start-up scenes – the Bay Area.
