Savitude at Techstars: Week 1 Journal From Camilla

Who would have thought that moving from Palo Alto to Minneapolis would be the thrill of a lifetime? If the first week is any indication, it sure looks like the rest of our stay in the Techstars Retail program will be amazing. We are working in the headquarters of Target.

Our team at home, on arrival

We have done a lot this week. After Day one with introductions and learning the Code of Conduct,  the fire hose of knowledge began. KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) and OKR’s (Objectives and Results) were a big theme last week, and this weekend we are catching up so we can implement what we have learned.

Highlights of the week:
