Here's what Brianna Herdering has to say about her internship with MNstarter:
"Being an intern this past semester with MNstarter is an experience that has helped me grow as an entrepreneurial student. As an intern, I was able to see first-hand what it is like to create a company when the market is brand new. I was very fortunate to have taken an entrepreneurial finance class where we learned about raising capital last semester. With the experience from that class and working with the MNstarter team, I am able to better understand how much of a pain point it is for startups to raise capital. Through my internship, my eyes have been opened to the growing entrepreneurial community in the Twin Cities. It's exciting to see how MNstarter is working to help entrepreneurs fund their passions.
Being an entrepreneurship major, I have been taught how vital it is to have a wide variety of skills. I came into my internship not knowing what to expect and eager to gain experience in social media and other types of media work. As I near the end of my internship it is exciting to look back and see how far I have come.
I have gained media and other skills such as:
- General startup knowledge
- The importance of communication, especially with your team
- Building lists and goals to keep you accountable and on track
Overall, working with the team at MNstarter showed me what it looks like to be part of a team that is passionate about what they are doing and dedicated to making sure that it works.
