May 2019 - August 2019 New York City, NY
“The summer was a truly exceptional and unique internship in the growth equity space. GA is a global growth equity firm based in NYC. In my summer, I was a sourcing analyst on the technology team. This meant that I was tasked with finding great tech companies that GA may be interested in investing in today or in the future. Each week I found companies in the Cloud/Data subsector using LinkedIn, Crunchbase and other sites/networks. Then I emailed their CEO explaining who GA is, and asked them to hop on a call. On the call you develop a filter and try and determine if this business would be a good investment opportunity. In the summer I had the chance to evaluate dozens of businesses, elevate them to the team, and ask for feedback on why it is a good/bad company. It is very rare to be able to think like an investor this early in your career, so there was plenty to learn. Overall it was a supportive environment where the senior professionals sat down with us to teach us how to source companies, evaluate them, and support the portfolio. We also had plenty of lunch-and-learns, dinners, and opportunities to socialize with the team outside of work. It's a growing firm and there are plenty of opportunities to grow as a young investor.”
