Asked about his impressions of being a judge and mentor at the competition which this year was based in Silicon Valley, California, United States of America, Brilly admitted that he gained a lot of valuable experience and lessons. Brilly was amazed to see how the companies start-up which was founded by students from all over the world are competing to solve various social problems. Part of these teams, continued Brilly, are trying to raise social issues, while others are raising commercial issues, both of which require urgent solutions through an entrepreneurial approach. "Another thing that amazed me about their works is their ability to explore science and technology developments such as Software Engineering, Neuroscience, Health-Tech, Virtual Reality, And Technology Drones in order to build innovative solutions," said the man who also serves as Head of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Laboratory at FIA UB.

Even though the Olride Apps team that she accompanied failed to advance to the Round of 6 or the Finals, Brilly was not discouraged. He considers that the knowledge and experience gained by the students under his guidance is far more valuable than a winning title. “By qualifying for the semi-finals of the competition start-up the most prestigious in the world, this shows that Indonesian students are not inferior in quality to students from other countries," said Brilly firmly.
