ARONO: MY EXPERIENCE AS AN INTERN AT A YOUNG CSE STARTUP
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.
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.
