The incubator

     

Last week I visited the incubator for the first time. The incubator is a place (in the basement of a hotel) the Lester Center provides to students who are working on their startups.

 

I was there because my classmate Thomas, who is working on MojaMix with Norberto, was conducting tastings for various cereal mixes. I couldn't pass up on the opportunity to eat and opine (my favorite activities).

 

This was Thomas and fellow taster Kristina:

 

After five bowls of cereal, I strolled around the incubator to check out the space. Since it was early in the morning, most of the cubes were unoccupied. Nonetheless, I could still feel the entrepreneurial spirit in the air.

 

It must be so exciting to be starting a business...
