The entrepreneurial journey is very complex and overwhelming. That’s why it’s healthy to start with a network of people who know what you’re going through and who are willing to support you even when things don’t make sense to you! That’s what LAU FMIC is all about. I’m glad I was able to start this crazy journey with my LAU Family.

DeSalin Co-Founder (LAU FMIC Spark21 – Runner-up)
My time in Spark did me more justice than a business course’s worth. During my second year of university, I had the incredible opportunity to be a part of the SPARK Program at LAU, backing my startup DeSalin, and I can confidently say that it’s been an absolute game-changer for my startup journey. From the moment I joined, I was welcomed into a community of passionate individuals driven by innovation and guided by experienced mentors. SPARK provided my teammates and I with a lot of insight, advice, networking, amongst many other provisions that any startup would be in desperate need of. We were constantly catered to and well-taken care of, and we had advisors available by our side for whenever we needed them. As a matter of fact, LAU’s vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem provided the perfect backdrop for the SPARK Program. Collaborative co-working spaces, networking events, and access to industry experts transformed my startup’s trajectory. The connections I made during the program turned into strategic partnerships, and the friendships into an extended support system.
