In addition to customer calls and market research, Associates will be involved with building valuation and return models, drafting of term sheets and investment memos, and ultimately overall deal execution, alongside one of the Vice Presidents or Principals at the firm.

Post-close, Associates will have the opportunity to work closely with their portfolio companies. In the past Associates have taken board seats, led management hiring, developed pricing strategies, and built KPI dashboards, among other key initiatives.
