My intern experience in ecentre was very precious to me. During the first period, I learned the general idea of how the ecentre helped new technology companies. Building the incubator model, creating the financial analysis sheets and doing the marketing strategy plan were necessary in that process. In the following period, I worked for The Story Mint, a startup out of the ecentre. My English writing skills were improved during this time. The most interesting and challenging thing was writing the user’s guide for The Style Guide, a product integral to the Story Mint. I also took part in several business meetings with Steve (CEO of ecentre) and Suraya (CEO of The Story Mint).
The whole internship made me know the difference between the academic world and the real-life business world. I really appreciated the opportunity, which not only improved my English ability but also helped me build up my teamwork abilities and communication skills. The ecentre internship experience played a vital role in my future career development.
