The U-imagine Center taking a closer look at some Ursinus Alumni that make us proud everyday with their exceptional achievements.
- Bernard Steyaert (20’)
“The U-Imagine Center at Ursinus College gave me the soft skills such as pitching, idea-development, and goal-planning that continually put me one step ahead of my peers. I spent two summers at the center: one in the Summer Business Assist, the other in the Digital Spark program. I can’t emphasize enough how much the U-Imagine Center developed me as a professional, and I would highly recommend any student to give it a try. As an Electrical Engineer, having the technical skills from coursework and projects can get you into an interview, but it’s the interpersonal skills and articulation that get you a job. Last summer I interned for EGA Associates LLC, a small healthcare startup based in Philadelphia. The skills I’ve learned through working with EGA are invaluable to my professional career as someone in tech looking to have a startup of my own someday.”
Some of the things I’ve been working on:
May 20 – July 20: Social Media Intern
July 21 – present: Digital Media Manager (8 months)

“Dear Ursinus friends: We are very proud to have been accepted into Backstage Capital’s inaugural Accelerator cohort! Please read the Fast Company coverage that features the UC Alumni’s company in the startup accelerator’s national press article here. With an acceptance rate of less than 2%, we’re honored to participate in the program as it further validates our business model and growth potential. Over the past several months, we have grown revenue and streamlined operations, giving us great momentum as we enter the program. Through the Accelerator we will focus on refining and executing our scale plan and identifying investors and partners to aid in our growth. We look forward to sharing additional updates as we participate in the Accelerator. If you have any questions about our current investment round or would simply like to catch up, please don’t hesitate to let me know!”
Keep up the great work, guys!
