Placement: Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN), Washington D.C.: March 21 – July 21, 2017
Luca’s main task at GEN was to do research on key ecosystem actors in Ireland, Israel and Lebanon. She also managed the Twitter account of GEN and its various online platforms, and she also took several online marketing courses to develop her skills in this field. Apart from her work at GEN, Luca also worked on a research project that she will use for her thesis later on. Her research project was on President Trump’s economic and trade policy and its possible outcomes, especially its impact on the EU and Hungary. She had the chance to take part in numerous events to have a better insight on this topic and had meetings with experts, for example with István Dobozi, a former lead economist at the World Bank. Luca was also instrumental in organizing the Coalition’s 2017 Gala Dinner and HATOG X conference.
“I was at the right place at the right time in many aspects. I was delighted that I had the chance to have a better understanding on the recent U.S. elections and its impacts. I was also excited that I could gain experience in how an American work environment really looks like. But I was interested the most in getting to know how the famous networking works at the capital city of the United States.”
