Working at a start-up is exciting work! And that’s been the case for apprentice Karina Burbank who is apprenticing to mentor Sean Smirnov who is leading the start-up Notefy. Notefy is a start-up company in the Cornell Accelerator Program that is working on re-examining the way text books and students interact. The group is looking into student learning styles and teacher-to-student communication in order to create an effective, time-saving product. We recently caught up with Karina to hear about her summer apprenticeship: “I've been going every day, 9-5, and I have been getting a lot done. I'm really enjoying the opportunity to be around so many innovative people, not just from Notefy, but also from the other start-up groups sharing this space. I've been learning a lot about web-design (I'm currently working on a mock-up for our platform's prototype,) business, publishing, and many other interesting things. Thanks again for setting this up! It's an amazing experience!
