Growth Hacking Intern

“This summer, I worked as the Strategy and Business Development Intern for Bikky, one of the ten startups selected for the accelerator’s summer batch. I delved into market research and strategy and built a new website for the company. I also led search engine optimization through coding and content creation on the site, I managed over ten client relationships, and designed marketing collateral for use in investor meetings. For three months, I developed skills both specific to the tech startup industry and applicable to any other industry - learning about SaaS startups, writing case studies, building a user-friendly website, maintaining meaningful client relationships, knowing how to pitch a company to investors and media outlets, and performing analyses on technical data.
The most learning, however, happened completely naturally - just talking with and learning from all the incredibly smart and accomplished members of the office who had come from all walks of life and wanted to impart their hard-earned wisdom. Being in Manhattan, I was able to easily attend several company networking events in fields I’m interested in learning more about, including finance, tech, and consulting.
