I am inspired to bring a positive impact on our society through sustainable economic development and technological innovation. My internship at Pantried, a tech start-up, was an excellent opportunity to gain exposure to all facets of entrepreneurship, from UX design, business development, marketing, sales, data analytics, funding and more. During this COVID-19 pandemic, Pantried app will provide a free online platform for both small businesses and buyers to find nearby available products. It's believed that this app will have a significant positive impact on the community and help local small businesses to survive. My 12-weeks internship has provided immersive training for entrepreneurship and innovation. It was a unique opportunity to make a positive contribution working alongside the visionary co-founders of a new tech startup. With my internship coming to an end, I have a positive feeling about my experience working for a tech start-up. I believe that my understanding, skills and abilities have been improved significantly through this internship and will be a valuable experience for my future career path.
