Director's Note

"Having been a part of past iterations, I have witnessed first-hand the inspiring birth of a myriad of ideas. From sustainable bio-fuels to Chinese dating apps, I am proud to have been a part of such a diverse cast of ideas.


Many founders also come in with not much more than a vague conception of an idea or simply a spark for entrepreneurship. I would thus encourage anyone and everyone to give the BSA an honest shot, you’ll never know where we might lead you." Ryan Lee
