“SDR Ventures, Inc. is a rapidly growing middle market investment bank, with integrity and professionalism advocated at the core of its operations. Therefore, I was quite eager to join this team of experienced professionals and facilitate my growth within the investment banking industry.
My experience with SDR Ventures was very rewarding, and more valuable than I could have imagined. I was immediately engaged in numerous deals, from the pitch phase to those that were closing. I was not only able to enhance my financial analysis and modeling skills, but also was able to augment my approach to industry research, improve my communication skills with senior bankers and better understand the expectations surrounding the content of final deliverables. I was able to work directly alongside analysts, but also engage and work directly with other members of the team, from associates all the way up to managing directors. It wasn’t uncommon for me to research key industry metrics for one deal, construct a potential buyer list for another deal and perform financial analysis for a third deal, all in one day. As a result, this internship experience cemented my interest in a long and prosperous career within the investment banking space.”
