Have really enjoyed my experience in ODCS. I was looking to expand my CS community and was able to do that both locally and globally. Also, definitely feeling more confident in driving change and outcomes from peer discussions and guest lectures. The content from our guest lectures was exceptional and I’ve already transferred some of my learnings into my work. Looking forward to more time with ODCS1 fellows!

This has been by far one of the best investments I have made in my professional journey! I was not completely sure what to expect when I started but from my first interaction with the program management it was a little too good to believe. Everything from the topics we we hit, the real time scenarios, the networking, no fluff working sessions with my peers globally...... it was incredible!

As the Head of Data Science of a high-growth startup, I must keep myself updated on the best practices and the state of the art, but In an efficient way. A combination of curated resources and a community to grow together is ideal. ODDS provides that space, where not only I'm given the right material to increase my knowledge and better my skills but I can share them with a group of high-performance colleagues

Where else can you find the power of a hyper-focused community of like-minded individuals who have valuable wisdom to share on a networking platform? OnDeck looks like the platform where ideas are sparked, connections are made, and deals are done. I'm into that!

It’s tiring. It can get lonely. You being to question your sanity…

The innovator’s dilemma is real. Over time, corporate inertia has extinguished some of the brightest lights. Which is why I believe every innovator needs a strong support group of like-minded dreamers. ODCI is that group.

Multinationals have the breadth to reach humans and identify their problems; entrepreneurs take this one step further and create disruptive value. Corporate innovators sit at the intersection of these two personas, helping large enterprises embody an entrepreneurial mindset to scale change.

I'm excited to join ODCI to exchange ideas and best practices with likeminded thought leaders in the Corporate Innovation space! I'm looking forward to learning and applying new innovation design frameworks to opportunities and challenges we face in areas such as climate change and public health.
