This internship falls within the third category.
An internship focused on a topic that is relevant to our advisory practice. Subject Proposal: The dawn of hyper elastic pricing. According to Moore's law processing power doubles every 2 years. Assuming that this applies to a broader range of electronic devices (including displays, sensors and raw processing power) the hardware cost to trace, trade, segment and adapt pricing based on socio-demographic criteria will become close to 0. This leads to a market where the purchasing power of consumers becomes transparent. Organizations are able to adopt prices of products and services based on these information.
