RiverRun Capital LLC

Search Fund Intern

April - August 2020 • San Diego, CA

What I liked

I was able to help the search fund operator on a one-on-one basis, whether it be creating marketing materials to send out to the investment banks we work with, reviewing and consolidating of financials for the deals we were working on. And this way, I was able to learn more of the private equity/buy side transaction process this summer. It was more to learn from than any freshman could've asked for!

What I wish was different

I wish I was in person working at the office of the search fund operator instead of working remotely. But regardless, it was still a great experience!


Would definitely recommend potential students to reach out within their own network at first (family, friends etc.), but also just cold email places you would be interested to work at. RiverRun was literally something that I did not expect to happen, I cold emailed the search fund operator in April and was able to interview within a week because he needed some help at that time.
