Yesterday I arranged a tour with Vineyard Networks for our 2nd year students. They did a great job of introducing the students to their upcoming product. The company is made up of friendly, enthusiastic and dynamic individuals who definitely have the makings of a successful startup. Although there wasn’t a lot to see, I think it’s important for students to experience environments outside of the college so they can relate it to their studies. It’s hard to fit these trips into an already very busy schedule, but the experience is certainly worth it.
