Here’s who’s been to Bamboo U.

Bamboo’s versatility is unparalleled, and so is Bamboo U's. As an engineer, the construction phase of the course was particularly fulfilling given that you get to synthesize everything you’ve learnt in a practical, hands-on, tangible way.

My expectations were exceeded. I fell asleep every night fully saturated with information and inspiration. To be honest, the best part of the course was the community it built and the creative dialogue it fostered.
