“As an intern at SDR Ventures I have learned the ins and outs of investment banking, and have been thoroughly impressed by SDR’s commitment to providing value to their clients. One of the aspects of my internship that I enjoyed most was researching various industries and businesses and using the information gained to prepare materials for various clients. I had the opportunity to learn many new skills as well as polish existing skills, ranging from preparing an amortization schedule to compiling and analyzing industry data. I also became proficient in using several online databases including PitchBook, ZapData, and Hoovers; and I was able to polish my Excel skills. Out of all of the knowledge and experience that I gained during my time at SDR, it was the SDR team that impressed me the most. The experience, intelligence, drive and kindness of the SDR team astounded me and proved to be an extremely valuable part of my internship. My experience has been one that I will without a doubt carry with me as I graduate and enter the career world.”
