"We are absolutely interested in having another intern in the fall. We have accelerated our marketing efforts and have a lot on our plate as we approach launch, so the help would be greatly appreciated. Having out intern, Hannah, through AMRII allowed us to grow our delegation and remote team management skills. The extra set of hands on deck allowed my co-founder and I to focus on product development and supply chain management while having Hannah focus on market research, press pitches and copy writing to build our online prescense. We are so thankful we all had the opportunity to learn from each other."
