Nathan Millard was Korea's most active writer about startups (in English) for two years. Then he caught the entrepreneurial bug and founded his own company G3Partners in January 2015 helping Asian startups communicate with the outside world - essentially Global PR for Asian startups. I've billed over $100k in the first 3 months and without any marketing have new enquiries for the service weekly, if not more.

Zach Galant Cofounder Codehs.com
I did the Lightspeed program the summer after my Junior year. I worked on a website called Raunk with four of my best friends. We lived in Menlo Park and got incredible (normally insnanely expensive) office space on Sand Hill Road for free. We routinely spent 12+ hours in the office and developed a full fledged website. We ended up getting 3000 signed up users and over 60,000 ratings, but the site wasn’t successful. We all went back to school in the fall, though we did some really cool machine learning and data visualization projects using ratings data we collected.Overall, I learned a lot about starting a company and building a website, and I didn’t sacrifice a summer of pay to do so. For me at that time, this program was exactly what I needed.
