Anna grew up on a farm in New Salem, North Dakota. The work ethic instilled in her youth has carried over into her adult life. Bernhardt is involved in a number of organizations in the DU community including AIESEC, Chi Omega, Team 1864, the Dean’s Excellence Committee. She is a DU Law Student Ambassador 1L Representative and a group leader for Meeting of the Minds. All of that in addition to her studies and work with Project X-ITE!
When asked about her interest in innovation, tech, and entrepreneurship, Anna says,
“I believe that the future is most definitely powered by technology and innovation is the only way to keep humanity moving forward. Entrepreneurs are the driving force behind innovation, creating ground-breaking products and ideas that will continue to drive the economy, and frankly the world, forward.”
While Bernhardt, admittedly, has little experience with the innovation, tech, and entrepreneurship worlds, she is eager to get more involved through her work with Project X-ITE. Inspired by the vibrant start up community in Denver, Anna looks forward to connecting students across the DU campus as they embrace their entrepreneurial spirit.
“I am excited to see Project X-ITE break down the barriers between the different schools across campus by engaging in meaningful discussions and encouraging cross-disciplinary collaboration.”
She believes the Project X-ITE summits and pop-up events will be great opportunities to do just that.
Despite her busy schedule, Anna recognizes the importance of balance and makes sure to factor in some down time for herself. She enjoys drinking coffee, reading fiction, and like most Colorado transplants, she has discovered a love for the Rockies and enjoys skiing whenever possible.
