I am planning on continuing my startup, Skinutri, full-time after my Master’s. Skinutri is the first European snack brand that offers a skin-friendly chocolate for people with sensitive skin who are looking for a carefree way of sustainable snacking without sacrificing on taste. The Enterprise Lab as well as extra-curricular activities such as the Imperial Launch Club, the Discovery Fund and the Imperial College Summer Accelerator thereby help you very much along the way to make this happen.

Being part of Imperial’s unique ecosystem helped me to grasp the vast amounts of innovations and solutions that are created within research institutions, which, with the right ways of commercialisation, support for scientists, engineers and other innovators and an entrepreneurial skillset have the potential to create substantial benefit for both society and the planet.

While the guest lectures, workshops at the Imperial Enterprise Lab, and events led by student clubs are beneficial, I find the recruitment sessions facilitated by Careers to be the most valuable. Imperial’s global reputation attracts companies like Bain, Google, Uber, Uniqlo, Bloomberg, McKinsey and more. Hearing recruiters and existing employees speak about company culture, recruitment processes, and their personal experiences is a huge competitive advantage.
