Qaptis storms Silicon Valley with IMD EMBA Discovery Week

Written on September 25, 2023

This week, we took Silicon Valley by storm at IMD‘s EMBA Discovery Week on Entrepreneurship. During a week-long expedition, Qaptis and MBA students visited the headquarters of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IDEO, participated in a design thinking workshop at Stanford University, and networked with pioneering entrepreneurs.

A highlight was pitching our startup to a panel of esteemed judges, including venture capitalists, a Stanford professor, and Jim Pulcrano, adjunct professor at IMD. Qaptis gained invaluable insights into the startup ecosystem and learned from some of the brightest minds in tech.

Key takeaways we are taking away from this trip:

  • Vibrant and supportive startup ecosystem
  • Rapid pace of innovation
  • Design thinking essential for success
