Last year, Dominik Nitsch joined our 6th Berlin cohort, having graduated in 2016 and spent his career to date in business development.
Here, he shares his first-hand experience of the programme, what he learned, and what he believes it’s important for someone considering founding a startup with our programme to consider.
A girl matched me on Bumble the other day and messaged: “actually, I just want to know about Entrepreneur First. I’m thinking about applying — should I?”
I was intrigued. That was different from the usual “hi how’s it going?” And I could relate.
In May 2020, I asked myself the exact same question. Except for a few articles on Medium, there weren’t many experience reports, and it’s hard to tell whether the program truly is right for you. I wanted an unbiased view from someone who had done the programme.
So today, let’s talk about what I learned in the past three months participating in the BE6 cohort in Berlin.
