A few thank yous are in order.
A year and a half ago, right after the Nice terrorist attacks, Professor Ken Singer approached me to start something new. I didn't know back then that he was trying to keep me sane. Thanks for helping me make sense of everything, and use my energy productively. I owe it all to you.
Next, I want to thank the Applied Innovation Academy, Oracle and King's Academy for taking a gamble on us when no one else would. This program wouldn't have been the success that it was had it not been for these great organizations.
I want to extend my deepest gratitude to all the participants who traveled half-way around the world to join us on this journey. Thank you for trusting us with your time and money, and I hope I was able to create something that impacted your lives, even if it's in the slightest of ways.
I want to thank all the mentors who were here, despite being stuck in a blizzard in New York, and working relentlessly with us, and being the sherpas in this journey. Thanks for all the pro bono work, and I look forward to working with you in the future.
Finally, my wonderful team, for making all this magic happen, and for putting up with me. God knows I give you guys a rough time every now and then.
I might have aged 5 years in the last 5 days, and there might be more caffeine in my veins than blood, but it was all worth it. Here's to many more.
