What led you to Growth Equity?

I was really involved in the entrepreneurial scene throughout college. Between my on-campus involvement and summer internships at other private equity firms, I knew that I would be happy sourcing and evaluating investment opportunities post-graduation. The best part about the industry is that it forces me to be nimble and flexible in quickly discerning a wide array of opportunities. The hustle doesn't stop and that really gets me going.

If you were speaking with someone who was considering interning at SGE, what advice would you give them?

If you are interested in growth equity, you should join SGE because you will walk out knowing what it takes to be successful in this industry. As an intern, the team loaded up my plate with as much as they thought I could handle, and I was ready for a feast of knowledge and experience - just like everyone else here. The best way to learn is to put your head down, work hard, and get comfortable talking on the phone. The entire internship provides a lot of learning opportunities, and there's a lot to learn from folks at SGE. The team is ridiculously intelligent and very good at what they do – so don't be afraid to just ask!
