What people say about us

He disguised himself as Henrik but he’s actually the Energizer Bunny. Henrik is a really charismatic guy bubbling with energy and eager to impart knowledge. The event I attended at Santa Clara University hosted by him has to be one of the best/most productive weekends of my life. Our team actually stumbled onto something really cool and I might spend the rest of my life working on it. And no, that is not an exaggeration.The event was planned really well and even though you essentially spend two days sitting inside a room “working” on your ideas, it never feels like work. There’s never a dull moment if Henrik’s doing an event around you, I’d highly recommend you attend it. It will change the way you think.

Attended the workshop in San José, Costa Rica. The energy that both Henrik and Eme brought and their passion for entrepreneurship is something to behold. They are not only passionate about it but focused on how to teach it, convinced that they are helping the world become a better place. The tools taught are invaluable and I must admit I hope I can share their thoughts and ideas with many others and help them change their lives the way I know this workshop has opened my eyes and will be a vital part of many changes in mine.

I attended the workshop at UCLA, and it was an amazing and inspiring experience. The coaching team was great at taking us through the learning process. Henrik is a great presenter, and I was amazed by the dynamic and passion shared by people ready to take risks and start their own company. Before the workshop, I did not know what was the process to create startup ideas, but now I want to be part of this community, and I feel better prepared.

I attended the Startup Experience at PESIT, Bangalore and it was brilliant! It was a truly unique experience that inspired my team to start our own company. Thank you Henrik for your positive energy, enthusiasm and great advice, and thank you Intel for bringing us together to be part of something extraordinary!
