My intent for joining this programme at Imperial was to bring an idea that I had begun working on in my last year of my undergraduate university to fruition. Since then, I’ve found an incredible co-founder with a very different skillset who has successfully exited from his previous ventures.

My future career goals are best mirrored by working at a company builder or as a technology consultant. Since I worked in the tech-industry before Imperial, it helped me connect with top-employees. However, to work as a venture architect, the Master’s helped me pivot by equipping me with all necessary skills required in this industry.
