Mindspace Trip Participants...
Both the visits at the universities (MIT labs and Digital learning office , Northeastern University) and the visit at Mass Challenge gave me a whole new perspective on how to redesign how we do things at Mindspace. Plus our visit at Learn Launch that gave me many ideas on my personal goals.
Analysis of the Boston ecosystem and its strategic advantages was generally insightful. Also, I got a lot of information regarding terms and processes relating to transfer of IP from universities to startups.
