The last year of the GCC was marked by one word – growth. After establishing itself in its first year, the club has set its course on growth in all aspects: from the number of members and companies that we work with to the activities that we offer to our members. We have more than doubled the number of members and companies we held events with and we have opened the pro-bono consulting practice which offers consulting experience to our members. Our pilot project with an ETH PhD-student organization was a tremendous success. Three projects are currently underway and three more are planned until the end of the year.
