Tomasz Bachosz, Intern 

Tomas is a student of computer science and business at the New York University Abu Dhabi. “Doing an internship at Kaliber increased my knowledge on international investment and how government attracts and supports investors. It has been also an opportunity to find out about the Berlin start-up scene and gain practical skills that I will be able to apply in my professional future as an entrepreneur. I recommend applying for the internship at Kaliber as it helps in understanding global investment trends, building knowledge about growing industries, and discovering market entry strategies.”
