Benjamin is studying a Bachelor of Entrepreneurship and completed a two-week internship in Singapore with HEX International during the summer of 2023. Benjamin reflects on his experience below: 


Q: Now that it’s over, what are your first thoughts about the overall program? 

A: Gosh, it was awesome! So much fun! The people I've met and the things that I've been able to do and see have been incredible. Being able to see the CNY party at Google was certainly a highlight.

Q: Has this program changed your goals, especially in regard to entrepreneurship?

A: I now have the goal of starting my business! This trip has definitely made it seem so much more possible. From meeting people who have already travelled the road before to speaking to VCs and founders, the world of startups seems much more normal and less walled garden than it did before I came.

Q: How will you use what you have learned in the future? 

A: Knowing the fact that it really is about your networking, and just asking because the worst that they can say is no.

Q: What can you do to help and encourage fellow entrepreneurs? 

A: There is no barrier to entry to entrepreneurship. The world really is your oyster and the best thing you can do is learn everything you can.

Q: How would you describe this program to others?

A: Amazing. It presents so many more opportunities than you can imagine. All the speakers and mentors are here to help you, and it will change who you are for the better.
