The Kai Entrepreneurship trips give an opportunity for Wesleyan Students interested in a career related entrepreneurship or tech to talk to alumni and friends of Wesleyan at their workplaces. We strongly believe that first hand exposure helps students see what's possible for their future careers. Kai Takes on Silicon Valley and Kai Takes on the NYC Tech Scene are our hallmark programs.
Kai Takes on Silicon Valley
Below are companies that have been visited on the 2015, 2016, and 2017 trips. Not all companies are visited on each trip. These students are expected to take notes and share about what they learned to the Wesleyan community through the Kai Voices Blog. Other trips occurring this year will have a much greater capacity, such as the Kai Wesleyan Takes on the NYC Tech Scene trip found at the bottom of this page.
