Can you tell us about your role at the Datategy, and what kind of projects or initiatives you have been working on during your internship?
As the CEO’s Assistant at Datategy, my primary responsibility is to lead the execution of the 2024 fundraising campaign, with a specific goal of engaging European and American investors. This mission holds great value as it not only allows me to directly contribute to the company’s growth and expansion but also provides me with a unique opportunity to strengthen Datategy’s global presence.
How has the Datategy teams help you to develop your skills and competencies in the data industry, and what have you learned during your time in the program?
My experience at Datategy has been exceptionally rewarding. I’ve worked closely with data scientists, gaining a deeper understanding of their roles and data analysis intricacies. Directly collaborating with the CEO has provided insights into running a data science company effectively. Moreover, the collaborative environment at Datategy has improved my communication and teamwork skills, particularly in conveying data insights to non-technical stakeholders. These skills have significantly contributed to my professional growth.
What kind of mentorship and support have you received during your internship, and how has this helped you to navigate your first professional experience?
The Datategy team has been incredibly supportive, ensuring that I’m not just a passive observer but an active contributor to meaningful projects. My direct supervisor Dounia and colleagues have been approachable and readily available to answer my questions, provide guidance, and offer constructive feedback.

Can you share any challenges or obstacles that you have faced during your internship, and how you have overcome them with the support of Datategy teams?
During my Datategy internship, a challenge I faced was the predominantly French-speaking team. However, they all speak English fluently and ensure I’m part of discussions by frequently switching to English when I’m present. Datategy’s diverse team from various countries has created an inclusive and enriching atmosphere, emphasizing the global and inclusive nature of the data industry.
What do you hope to achieve during your time at the Datategy, and how do you see this experience helping you to achieve your long- term career goals in the data industry?
