Business Angels Norway aims to grow the angel investment scene in Norway. At a local event in Kristiansand, Rebartek was featured as one of two promising local start-ups.
Last week, our CEO Max, got the opportunity to present our start-up at a seminar held by Nordic Angel program, NAP (a program by Business Angels Norway).
Part of EU’s 80 Billion Euro initiative “Horizon 2020”, The Nordic Angel Program (NAP) is a training program about cross-border startup investment.
At the seminar, participants got insight into the processes that NAP applies to choose the best start-ups. They also presented their educational course for new angel investors. Rebartek was asked to join the seminar as a featured promising start-up.
What our IT intern Emil has to say about his time so far in Rebartek

Emil Morønning Ruud started as an IT- intern at Rebartek in December of last year. He has now been working with us for a few weeks, so I sat down with him to get his thoughts on the experience so far.
In order to get the word out to students, Rebartek runs ads on kompetansetorget, a platform that connects students at the University of agder and employers. But Emil found us the old fashioned way: -the jungle telegraph.
When asked about his descision to work for us, he is quick to answer:
-What tempted me the most about working here, is all the tech that is integrated in the work you are doing; Machine vision, robotics and AI, amongst other things.
In our team, Emil contributes with his skills in programming.
-At the moment we are mainly using Python as our programming language, but we might need to expand on this front at some point.
Doing something that’s never been done
Emil says he finds the other members on the
team very eager to help each other, and he explains why that is crucial in a
startup like this one:
-We are doing something that hasn’t really been
done before. So, understandably no one really has the exact expertize for the interdisciplinary
development we’re doing. So we need to try things out all the time. But this
also means that you’ve got a job where you are constantly gaining skills.
You don’t need to know it all to be an intern
Emil says he encourages students to apply for
an internship at Rebartek, and points out a common apprehension students might
-People are often scared that they don’t have all
the skills that are important in an intern position. But that really doesn’t apply
here. We just need people that have some base-experience or skills in one or
more of our fields, and then your job as an intern is to learn as you go.
Rebartek welcomes Emil, and we are looking forward to seeing him develop along with our team.
