nHack interns add summer oil!

At the height of summer, engines go into maintenance mode many places, but at nHack the machine room is at full speed thanks to a new “cohort of interns”. We have always felt a special responsibility to bring Nordic students to China, and Chinese students into our Nordic offices here in China. This summer is no different. In this short piece we profile a few of our summer interns, all of them committed to the Sino European bridge, looking for work and opportunities. We love them all and could not operate as well without them, from research to accounting, from admin to portfolio support!
