Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be part of a startup? CBS student Emilie Rosenørn recently worked as an intern at a young CSE-startup. Read on to hear about her experience and what she learned from it.

In the summer of 2017 I spent my time interning at the startup Arono. Arono is a health platform that offers customized diet plans for anyone wanting to lose weight, live a healthier lifestyle or gain muscle mass. The great thing about Arono is that it enables users to reach their goals on their own terms and thus be able to live a happier and healthier life.

Looking back, I am so grateful for the experience and how I got to spend my summer with an incredible team of young, talented, and dedicated entrepreneurs. I would definitely encourage all college students to intern or work at a startup company if they ever have the opportunity.

The entrepreneurial spirit

It didn’t take long for me to feel passionate about Arono because I clearly saw the passion and energy that the founders of Arono have put towards the company and it was simply contagious. They believed in Arono’s mission and so did I, which made me even more intent on sharing it with others. The company’s culture was deeply inspiring and it gave me a better idea of what I would want in a future workplace.

Responsibility and influence

Interning at a startup is quite unique because you are given a great amount of responsibility. At the same time you get to contribute to the success and growth of a company and influence it in its very early stage. This means you get to create value and experience the outcome and difference that your particular contribution has made, which was one of the great aspects of interning at a young startup.

Startup insight

My experience at Arono has left me with great insight into startups and all of the hard work that goes into starting and building a company. My time at Arono introduced me to a whole new world of tech companies, apps, funding, building a website, buying domain names, and the life of an entrepreneur. I was told countless stories about successful and failed startups which I learned so much from.

During my summer internship at Arono, I firsthand experienced how a startup works, how much hard work goes into it, and how the amount of things that must be done can seem endless. My internship has left me with tremendous respect for anyone who chooses to start their own company and decides to pursue a cause that they believe in.

Interning at Arono was an incredible experience. If you are interested in meeting the founders of Arono you can find them at CBS Entrepreneurial Day 2017 – I’m sure they’ll love to say hi.



Arono is a health service with a mission to make it easier for people to live a healthier and happier life. Arono offers customized diet plans (“kostplan” in Danish”) for anyone who wishes to lose weight, live a healthier lifestyle or gain muscle mass. By tailoring the diet plan to the individual’s goal as well as nutritional needs, Arono enables the user to reach their goal on their own terms and within their own time frame. Week by week, the user will get closer to living a better, healthier, and happier life.

With Arono, we wish to make information about health and nutrition more widely available and easier to understand. In a world where we are constantly overexposed with facts, information, and opinions on what to eat and how to live, we want to create a platform where people can reach their health goals – no matter how big or small – in an easy and simple way. Because at Arono, we believe that everyone deserves to live life to its fullest.

Arono was developed with help from experienced healthcare and nutrition professionals and with data from the National Food Institute at the Technical University of Denmark. Throughout their use of Arono, users are teamed up with a dietician as a way of providing support and help to the users. The health service is subscription-based and currently consists of 250+ recipes that are adjusted to the user and their needs and goals.

According to the Danish Agriculture and Food Council four out of ten Danes followed a specific diet in 2015 with the aim of losing weight[1]. By offering customized diet plans, we we wish to offer a more beneficial and long-term solution to anyone wanting to live a healthy life. Food is one of the few things that bring people together while making them happy. At Arono we believe that eating a healthy and nutritious diet will increase your quality of life and help you become a happier person.
