The Premier Growth Equity Interview Guide

A note from the author

I’ll be upfront – this guide is NOT for everyone.

This is a premium course. It costs real money because it delivers a ton of value for serious candidates. However, it’s not for everyone.

To get the results you want, you have to put in the work. This guide is only for those people take their Growth and Private Equity interviews extremely seriously and are willing to do the work.

If you want to prepare for your interviews by sitting back and listening to someone talking passively without engaging with the material, this is not the guide for you.

If you are offended by the thought of spending 20 hours to prepare for your dream job interviews, this is not the guide for you.

If you don’t have the discipline to turn off Game of Thrones and make a long-term investment in your career, I hardly blame you as Game of Thrones is amazing but this is not the guide for you.

Here’s the GOOD NEWS though.

If you are the kind of person who wants to do the work and invest in your future, this guide will give you the best possible chance of landing your Growth Equity and Private Equity dream job.

Your first jobs in your career, set your career’s trajectory; as I've written about previously, there are a multitude of exit options available after Growth Equity.

Are you the kind of person who is willing to invest time to set your career trajectory? If so, let’s work together.

About

Here's the deal

I didn’t graduate from undergrad with a business degree, and I didn’t work at an investment bank named “Morgan”. I shouldn't have ended up with offers from General Atlantic (my top choice and one of the pre-eminent global Growth Equity funds) or multiple top private equity funds in New York, but somehow I did…

I've certainly been lucky along the way, but the reason I got these offers was diligent preparation. I wasn’t the most qualified during my interviews, but I was certainly the best prepared. I spent countless nights and weekends doing everything I could to prepare for my interviews.

I'm an 'operator' at growth companies now, but I wanted to start this site because I’m frequently asked by friends and colleagues how they can make the jump into Growth Equity.

Given the embarrassing amount of time I spent preparing for my own Growth Equity interviews (it’s literally embarrassing), I realized I could compile the definitive growth equity recruiting guide to help diligent candidates significantly reduce prep time and land their dream job.


What My Official Bio Says

Through exhaustive—some might say overkill—preparation, Michael received an offer from General Atlantic, one of the pre-eminent global Growth Equity funds, and multiple top private equity funds, despite graduating with a liberal arts degree, and working at a non-premier investment bank.

Michael worked as an investment associate at General Atlantic, a premier growth equity fund managing $20 billion in capital with 11 offices globally. While there, he completed new investments totaling $600 million, including the firm’s first deals in the retail and energy services industries. Prior to General Atlantic, Michael worked in the Financial Sponsors investment banking group at Deutsche Bank, where he provided strategic and financial advisory to private and growth equity clients.

Following General Atlantic, Michael was recruited to join a selective policy advisory team created during Financial Crisis of 2009 at the United States Department of the Treasury to advise the Obama Administration on policy issues related to financial markets. Most recently, he worked as an operator at Airbnb, a General Atlantic portfolio company, where he was responsible for launching new products and monetization initiatives.

Michael graduated from Amherst College with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, and he is co-author of “Microfinance: The Grassroots of Finance,” published by Wingate Books in 2009.
