We’re excited to have David Engle join us as a Marketing Intern for the summer. We wanted to find out all about him, so we asked him a few questions. Here are his responses:
Why did you want a summer internship at Kaptur?
I wanted to be immersed within the startup industry to be able to learn all the ins and outs from the way business is conducted to the everyday culture. Kaptur seemed like a perfect fit because it was an internet startup, based in NYC, and had a sizable team of employees.
What do you want to be when you graduate from college?
I want to be an entrepreneur that enjoys every day on the job and is able to support and impact many lives throughout the local community.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned so far (if anything)?
The most important thing I have learned at Kaptur is to have fun while working. Most people go to work from 9-5 to earn a living, but what Kaptur has shown me is that not only is working at Kaptur trying to make a living, it is a way of life (shooting down helicopters with nerf guns). Within the first week of interning at Kaptur I realized that when I open my first business I will ensure that everyone enjoys their job, no matter what the cost.
If I gave you 1 million dollars how would you spend it?
I would take $400,000 and buy a foreclosed house and start renting it out until the economy turns around to be able to sell it. Invest $100,000 in the stock market, mainly low priced food companies. $200,000 to create a non profit organization focused on feeding healthy meals to homeless and underprivileged children within the United States. Finally I would take the remaining $300,000 and buy a big piece of property in Colorado to farm and live off of.
If you could only take 3 things to a desert island with you what would they be?
1) Another person, preferably a medic.
2) Water purifier to clean the ocean water.
Thanks David! Very logical answers…we can tell who’s the brains in the marketing team
And this is what David likes to Kaptur when he’s not shooting helicopters down with nerf guns in the office: www.kptr.it/leadershiptraining
