Last Week

During my final week at Flat World, I was given the opportunity to see a little more of the software’s future trajectory. My work involved what Babson referred to as Entrepreneurship of All Kinds: the operational characteristics seemed to be in line with the financial services industry as a whole, but the tasks themselves did…

As the summer comes to a close, it is important to look back on the time spent working at your internship. I began reflecting on my time at MassChallenge when talking with my boss at lunch one-day last week. He asked if I felt my time with him at MassChallenge was worth giving up valuable…

2. Taking the Day Off to Work
