The RCBH event was a great opportunity for me to network and get to know people interested in the same field as me in a much more opening setting. I loved learning about the other attendees’ entrepreneurial ventures and passion projects; inspiring mine as well. I think the hackathon part really played a crucial role in helping me interact with my teammates! For example I got to know about their small businesses and implement their experiences into our solution for the hackathon as well.

The 2023 Rising C-Suites Business Hackathon, powered by Berkeley Haas and Berkeley Haas Business Academy for Youth (B-BAY), was an insightful and fun experience. The event put an important emphasis on real-world problem-solving skills with unique business issues to tackle. Along with being awarded second place overall, I networked with other like-minded students and learned a ton from the program’s esteemed guest speakers and Haas faculty. Rising C-Suite’s Hackathon is a must for any high-school student looking to grow personally, connect with others, and apply business principles into action.

As someone with limited business experience, I found value in the networking opportunities at this hackathon. It brought together some of the most exceptional students from across the Bay Area, which gave me an outlet to expand my professional network and gain insights from experienced professionals. I would truly recommend this hackathon to anybody, even if they have limited business experience as I did.

My experience with Rising C-Suites was incredibly fulfilling. Not only did I get to explore fields I was interested in, but I got to network with industry professionals, as well as like minded peers. The unique student led structure is what really drew my interest, and the hands-on experience I gained during my time there is invaluable.

The Rising C-Suites Hackathon that I attended last June, gave me a huge outlook on the business world. The way Darsh, Aarav, and Angad showed how businesses and creative thinking can be used together fired a process in me, I looked more into business and financial programs, got involved with entrepreneurs, and started my first year at DECA. The Rising C Suites Hackathon gave me a starting platform to find my path in the business world and focus on a career that I can truly enjoy!
