Impact : Describe Impact in 3 words

Momentum, Practicing, Bigger

Impact : What are the memorable steps you’ve crossed since you’ve been selected to the program?

Being selected and the celebration that followed was quite memorable. Once we arrived in San Francisco, practicing our pitch, meeting with different people and realizing that we had to take Lima to the next level.

Impact : Which part of the program has been the most helpful for you?

The two most helpful components of the program included the numerous workshops and meetings with different entrepreneurs who shared their stories, experiences and advices. All of this helped us gather precious feedback on our product and strategy.

Impact : What is your best memory of the program?

Pitching is definitely a big component of the program, but I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people, discovering Galvanize which is a great work space and chatting with everyone about their projects.

Impact : How has Impact changed you company?

Enabling us to adopt an American mentality and think bigger.

Impact : What are the next steps for your company?

We’re looking to open up an office in San Francisco by the end of the year.

Impact : Impact : Any advice for the class of 2017?

You’d think 10 weeks is a long time, but actually it’s really short. So hurry, don’t waste any time, and go to as many events as you can to meet with as many people as possible and engage with them. Consistently send follow up emails, some of them will say no, but a majority will say yes and it’s always interesting to learn from their experience. Another advice would be to try not to get too caught up in your operations back in France and make the most out of your stay in SF.
