8th-14th December 2015

Led by SMU’s Entrepreneur-in Residence Dr. Virginia Cha, BSM Atlanta brought SMU students and Atlanta’s hottest startups together. Not only do students learn about Atlanta’s entrepreneurship environment, they also had hands on experience working with individual startups. Throughout the course, students communicated extensively with their assigned startup founder, and provided valuable research and Asian insights to them, whilst gaining valuable experience and advice from the whole exercise.

The course culminated in the trip to Atlanta to present their final project to the startups, and finally meet the founders that they have been working so closely with. Friendships were forged at the many networking events and Chowdowns that ATV had to offer, paving the way for future internship and job opportunities.

Entrepreneurship aside, no visit to Atlanta is complete without a trip to The World of Coca-Cola, CNN Studio and the famous Emory University.
