Hello! My name is Emily Tan. I was one of about 40 students selected from 1000 applicants around the world to attend a summer program called LeanGap for 6 weeks in Boston. There, I will learn how to initiate, produce, and manage a company while also starting my own company. Through computer science, math, and entrepreneurship, I will have access to locations including Harvard, MIT, and Microsoft labs in order to pursue my own creation. My mentors will include TEDx talkers, winners of nationwide hackathons, and young inventors and company owners of all kinds (LinkedIn, Blanc watches, etc).
While the program offers many open doors into my future, the difficult part is being able to fund it, which is why I have created this page. With the money raised, I will be able to complete my payment for the program tuition, including food and housing, as well as a plane ticket to Boston and back.
The final program payment will be due by May 30, but to ensure I can secure a spot in the program, I am hoping to reach my goal by May 15.
Attending LeanGap will give me the amazing opportunity to build something original through my passion for creativity. I am grateful for and appreciate every person who helps contribute, no matter the amount. Every dollar contributed means so much to me. Thank you!
