“My internship at Company42 exceeded my expectations. As an intern at Company42, you will not be sent on coffee runs. You will be fully integrated and involved in the daily work and projects at the office.

During my internship, I’ve been attending meetings, preparing sales and onboarding material, created our help centre and made proposals to our web design.

An added bonus to my internship was the Growth course. It provides you with insight and knowledge which will become useful throughout your internship. At Company42 they allow and encourages you to put the knowledge you gain in the courses into experiments.

I'll recommend the internship as a Growth Hacker to anyone who is looking for an internship that gives you flexibility in regards to working hours and projects, to anyone who is that want's to get an insight into the daily life at a start-up and for them who strives to gain knowledge in growth hacking and do there absolute best. It's expected of you that you show a good work ethic and you are the absolute best version of you.”

“Company42 is a friendly, multicultural and employee-centric company where everyone can bring ideas to the table. Teamwork, dialogue and collaboration are emphasized at Company42. I was privileged to learn by doing, try new things out, and share my thoughts at Company42. During my internship experience, I had the chance to develop my key skills and work with different tools and platforms. It feels great to work in an easy, uplifting atmosphere and happy mood.

Josephine Schrøder

"I was a bit sceptical about the term “growth hacker” however I soon realized that the term covers a very specific and attention-grabbing part of digital marketing.

I recently finished the course and I have learned so much about retention strategies, quantitative growth models, user psychology, growth roadmaps and much more.

The best thing about the course is that it is part of an internship. This way you get to apply your newly obtained knowledge to an exciting and entrepreneurial project and observe your own developed concepts in a real-life experiment."

Filippo Bernardis: 

“At Company42 I learned the importance to take data-driven solutions and decisions. The most significant learning has been to understand that choices can and should always rely on rationality instead of "gut" instincts. Lifting one's ego from the decision-making has been eye-opening.

Laila Mazzurco: 

“Company42 is a mix of energy, high commitment, and strong passion. Being part of this team has been an inspiring journey, where the motivation and hard work is always combined with respect for each other and with kindness. At Company42 I have always found a cooperative and dynamic environment: every question is an occasion for discussion and for generating new insights. As a growth hacker at Company42, I have come up with my own ideas, I have thought how to develop them, and I have been given the chance to implement them. There is nothing more satisfying than been addressed with the possibility and responsibility of following your own projects, with the risk of being unsuccessful, but also with the priceless opportunity of understanding your own errors and develop something better. Moreover, during my growth hacking experience, I have been lucky enough to be flanked by an amazing team: a growth hacker is nothing without its team, and the team is nothing without some curious, determined and cooperative people inside it.”

Sowmmiya G Somanathon:

“It’s refreshing to have been a part of Company42, that does value their employees. From the culture to the opportunities, to the commitment and perfect work-life balance with the fantastic coworkers. Company42 has been just perfect. I am proud to have been a part of Company42.”

Shudi Pan:

“I think the growth course is very useful! I have learnt a lot about marketing and business in general.

Also personally it’s a brand new experience working in a young innovative Danish company. I really love it.

Totally shaped my view of Danish culture, in a good way.”
