Corkscrew Startup Experienceships
Submitted by Cole Holan - Emory University | September 23, 2016
I initially didn't know what to expect from this program. I was taken back after meeting the team. They were so inclusive and great at getting us up to speed with both the city and the startup scene. I was nervous at first that I wouldn't be able to come up with a startup idea, but ironically, I ended up having trouble narrowing down which idea I wanted to further work on. The working environment made it really easy to come up with feasible ideas. Berlin itself was a great city to network in and launch a startup. I was there during the Tech Open Air, and I got to learn so many tools to augment my startup idea. I learned a new way of thinking, Cokrcrew Thinking. It is an out of the box type of thinking that I will be able to use throughout my life. I would highly suggest this program to anyone looking to personally grow and wanting to become more independent.

A very unique experience

This internship allowed me to gain confidence in presenting and expressing my own ideas. The corkscrew team is very dedicated and willing to help you with any troubles you are having. I recommend this experience to anyone that wants to develop entrepreneurial skills in an encouraging environment. As an economics major it gave me a competitive edge about others in my field of study by allowing me to think outside of the box.
Corkscrew in Barcelona

Corkscrew in Barcelona was an amazing program and probably the most productive and fun way to spend my summer abroad. Often out of my comfort zone, I was able to develop skills I didn't know I had before and was push to the fullest to be the better version of myself. I'm forever grateful for what I learned at Corkscrew and so happy with what came out of this. Entrepreneurship is now a passion for me and thanks to my incredible mentors Andreu and Neil for everything they thought me. I totally recommend this program to anyone who is looking for a creative and inspiring way to spend their summer. I will never forget my time there!

I loved my time in Barcelona doing the Corkscrew program. I was looking to do some type of internship to add to my resume, but also wanted the experience of traveling abroad. This program ended up being the perfect combination. I got to travel around Spain and Europe, meet amazing people, and learn all about the local culture from locals themselves. But I also had the amazing opportunity to do a hand-on internship with a local start up in Barcelona while also learning personal development skills, project management, creativity, and entrepreneurship. I accomplished so much more than I thought I was capable of, came away with so much more than I would have from a traditional internship, and can't wait to go back to Barcelona and Europe to meet up with all of my Corkscrew connections. Absolutely recommend this program - it's amazing!!

Had a great time in Barcelona with Corkscrew this year. The program gives you the tools and knowledge for you to begin a journey in entrepreneurship. I worked with Neil and Andreu who are both really cool, genuine and down to earth guys who have a great understanding regarding small business ventures.
