This week at Ignite has been intense but very useful. It has allowed me to consider aspects of my entrepreneurial project that I did not know how to take. Thanks to this, I have made significant progress in defining my business plan and knowing how to pitch it.

Ignite made me more willing to try and experiment an entrepreneurial journey, gave me more optimism and self-confidence.

Participating in the course greatly changed my perspective on what is possible with academic research - particularly with respect to producing research with a strong societal impact.
