My 8-week eMBA program in Santiago, Chile is finally done with a slight feeling of sadness.
I worked for Endeavor Entrepreneur Jorge Nazer at ALTO, a company dedicated to preventing, persecuting, and deterring theft through IT solutions. In addition to consulting on strategy, I focused on developing the business plan for an innovative website.
My experience was challenging but definitely rewarding. Working in Spanish gave me a chance to learn the language, and I appreciated the opportunity of getting a first-hand look at what it’s like working for a startup.
After my final presentation to Jorge, he gave me excellent feedback and career advice–not only for becoming an entrepreneur, but becoming a leader in any organization. He taught me the importance of giving and creating value for others, in the spirit of noblesse oblige.
I am much more interested in entrepreneurship now and seriously thinking about starting my own company in the near future. In the meantime, I’d like to thank all the people I met on my “Endeavor journey” — Endeavor, the other eMBAs, and my colleagues at ALTO. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
