Take away: Attending the Sync event organized by Entrepreneurs Academy on the 9th of October in central Uppsala gave some valuable insights into the B2B market as well as personal experience in communication.
Before the event, we were asked to prepare for a 90-sec pitch on stage in front of the attending companies. Most students felt nervous as anxiety boiled up in queue leading up to the closed of conference room, now filled with company representatives were students were to enter one at a time. I too felt anxiety even though it was not my first time on stage in front of a group of people. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect, and we were all there for the learning experience as well as those of us who also sought master thesis projects and potential future employees (almost everyone).
When the pitching session was over we (students) were assigned to rounded tables to which company representatives came an sat for 12 min at a time, discussing what their business models and what sort of talent (personal and/or academic) they looked for.
Conclusion: even though I didn’t find any master thesis project of interest I value the over-all experience and insights into the different business models and the respective markets which they targeted.
