Silicon Valley Challenge – we are getting started!

by Nadine

Finally, we’re here: More than four months after launching the project and inviting people to apply, after working through 368 fascinating, inspiring and exciting applications, after preparing a demanding yet stimulating agenda … finally, we are all here in San Francisco.

Tomorrow, WACKER Digital’s Silicon Valley Challenge will officially start!

Our 19 challengers are quite excited – and so am I when I see them sitting together on this very first evening … chatting, laughing, discussing, already sharing first thoughts and ideas. It’s fantastic to just feel their energy and anticipation!

Sure, the program ahead is nothing to rest on, and the task – finding a new, applicable and profitable business model in only four weeks – is definitely not easy. But looking at our mix of participants, the diversity of the teams with their various backgrounds, their different knowledge and experiences, and above all, their happy, excited and motivated faces, gives me a positive feeling. We are expecting a lot from them, but they are all more than willing to seize this unique opportunity – taking chances together!
