"My biggest take away is highly efficient teamwork. We complete the project in a really diverse team in just one week. We directly get feedback from clients in presentation and I keep in touch with them even after the project. Nexstar gives me valuable real case experience and would highly recommend to other students."
"This wonderful trip was entirely beyond my expectations, and I was surprised to gain a range of practical skills in the market analysis along with Safety Compass, such as how to apply different market analysis models, how to do user segmentation, market share analysis and competitor analysis. "
"It is a great opportunity for both startups and international students. Startups, like us, can leverage fresh ideas and independent external views on the company, market evaluation and products. Students can gain practical real life experience from this program, which is really valuable, I wish I could have joined something like this when I was an international student back then. "
