Boston Consulting Group DV Strategic Design Internship (Summer 2018)
I had a remarkable time in Manhattan Beach, California with Boston Consulting Group Digital Ventures. BCG is ranked #3 on Forbes 2018 top places to work for a reason. The bright individuals who surround you have diverse backgrounds which brings a wide range of thought. This type of thought and the implementation of design methodology focus is why this company is so successful.
BCGDV is a unique blend of an innovation, investment, incubation, management, and consulting firm with a design focus. Design is at the core of all of their "start-ups" and they understand what the consumer and industry needs before creating. I learned a great deal about the "start-up mentality" and the necessary means to be able to truly build a business from the ground up. From pitching the initial idea to a client to conducting end viability tests to ensure that the customers still find the product valuable, I was fortunate to be able to see and participate in all of these events.
I would love to tell you all about the projects I worked on but in keeping with the non-disclosure agreement, I am unable to share more. I am able to tell you more about the tasks I performed during this internship, please contact me if interested. Thank you for understanding.
