Graduate of top business school

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

Mike worked as an investment associate at General Atlantic, a premier growth equity fund managing nearly $80 billion in capital with 10+ offices globally. While there, he helped source and complete new investments totaling $600 million, including some of the firm’s first deals in the retail and energy services industries. Prior to General Atlantic, Mike 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, Mike was recruited to join a selective policy advisory team within the Obama Administration to advise on policy issues related to financial markets. Most recently, he worked as an operator at Airbnb, a General Atlantic portfolio company, where he launched new products related to financial services.

Mike earned his MBA from the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania, his BA in Economics from Amherst College. He is co-author of “Microfinance: The Grassroots of Finance,” published by Wingate Books in 2009.


I didn’t graduate from undergrad with a business degree, and I didn’t get a job at the very best investment bank afterward. And yet, I ended up with offers from my top choice growth equity fund (General Atlantic) and multiple other top growth and private equity funds.

I’ve certainly had luck along the way, but the primary reason I got these offers was my unique preparation for interviews. I spent countless nights dissecting everything I needed to know and doing whatever I could to prepare.

After having worked in the industry, I’ve now seen both sides of the interview table (giving and receiving), and I’m uniquely qualified to help candidates prepare for growth investing interviews.
