Even with an MBA from Hult and lots of work experience, I found it really helped to have a partner like Collabriv to open the door at Ultra Capital and represent me.
I’d worked at a large company in India but wanted to experience the start-up culture here. I’ve really learned how to be more flexible and work quickly.
I studied abroad for the last 3 months of my Master’s, and Collabriv helped me secure OPT early in that time, which meant much less stress. You won't regret starting early.
I was very focused on the job description at Charles Communication, but Collabriv saw the fit for me with the staff there, and that made all the difference.
This fall, we are building on our experience placing Master’s graduates from the Hult International Business School with companies based at coworking spaces: we will place a first team of 10 Hult graduates in year-long OPT jobs (marketing, biz dev, data analysis, etc) with companies based at WeWork-Civic Center in San Francisco.
For WeWork members: you not only get a talented international professional—called a Collabriv Fellow—who brings new perspectives, ideas and contacts, but you also get regular advice and help from the team of 10 Fellows as needed.
For Hult Master’s students graduating in August: you not only get a challenging job and the chance to interact with leaders of the 10 companies, but you also get to know many of the other 500 members at WeWork-Civic Center—new colleagues who can provide advice, introductions, perhaps even future partnership and work opportunities.
Our finance department was seeking international professionals with finance and communications skills—not always easy to find together. Collabriv came through, and the Fellows from Nicaragua, Belgium, Turkey, and Nigeria contributed significantly during their year here.

We have employed a total of 10 Collabriv Fellows over the last 3 years—from all over the world—and we continued to employ Nkatya back home in Zambia as a member of our communications team, even though our work is focused on the East Bay.

We had not hired Hult graduates before but were so impressed by Gayathri’s skillset and her ability to wear many hats that we have since hired two more Hult grads. And because they had already spent a year here they really hit the ground running, which was great for us.
-Pierre-Loic Assayag, CEO
I’ve seen that studying abroad can bring out the best in people in a way that makes an international professional a particularly strong fit for young companies. Adrien’s hunger for the job with us and his persistence were early signs of good things to come.
