I wanted to add depth and breadth to my understanding of the technology ecosystem, beyond my experience in a technology startup and large Internet companies in the Valley. The lectures, company visits as well as the interactions with veteran entrepreneurs and other key stakeholders in technology innovation were extremely valuable.
I saw that the program offers the rare global component I was looking for, and the average age of the TRIUM cohort appealed to me; it brings a higher level of conversation. I also recognized that I would be able to apply a high percentage of my classroom knowledge to my job.
