MBET – The Final Month!!

July 5th, 2007 · No Comments

It is hard to believe, but our year in MBET is coming to an end. As of tomorrow, there are only four more weeks until our last exam. I’ve been all over the place lately, including a little break for a trip to Newfoundland to visit my girlfriend’s family. During this time, the rest of my class went to Boston for a week to meet some VC’s, check out the TieQuest conference, and see the city. They had an awesome time!!

One thing about MBET is that despite the apparent “lighter schedule” in the summer, things are still busy. We are completely finished with a few of our courses, but still have a lot of work to go in the other ones. In the next few weeks we have to wrap up the practicum projects, hand in some assignments, and write a few more finals.

I’ve got a lot of things on the go trying to get everything setup to go full-time with HealthSpoke once things are finished. I am working on putting financing in place, but am also working up some bootstrapping alternatives. Things are looking good and I think I’ll be going full-time at it in the fall!! MBET has certainly put me into a solid position to launch my business, and I am definitely much better prepared having gone through the program than I was at this time last year!
