"I learned a lot about strategy, venture capital, leadership and Portuguese culture."
My summer internship was a great experience. I had the chance to work for a music startup – Tradiio – to help them refine their business model and strategy.
The CEO first interviewed me on a top floor of their office during a music recording! Hard to say no to this type of opportunity! I then immersed my self completely into the project and the team to tackle the different challenges faced by a startup.
In return I learned a lot about strategy, venture capital, leadership and Portuguese culture.
It was hard to leave at the end of the internship but, we found a way to keep on working together throughout the end of the year. When I graduated from the Lisbon MBA, I agreed to join the team on a full-time basis and it felt very natural.
I’d be definitely doing the same choice again, as an experience in a startup exposes to different dimensions that will help you build an entrepreneur mindset.
