First rate business talent with a passion for startups
I highly recommend the Norwegian School of Entrepreneurship’s internship program.
At Crowdbotics, interns from the NSE have helped secure enterprise deals, built machine learning systems and managed long-term marketing campaigns. We love hosting interns from the Norwegian School of Entrepreneurship.
Our intern from the Norwegian School of Entreprenuership did an excellent job. She outperformed our expectations, and we regret to see her go. We are not foreign to participate in the program going forward!
