Best allowed me to explore the path of being a startup in which I discovered a similar faculty that was the same as what I experienced in Best. BEST was one of the best camp I went to for entrepreneurship because I really had to put myself out there to try different skills such as pitching and creating a prototype of our innovation and the best part of Best was that I met many people from different schools and allowed me to open up to new perspectives
