“I would not have received my offers if not for the work I did with the fund. I learnt everything from how to break down industry value chains while assessing moats and key drivers to working out firms’ unit economics, which paralleled assessments in recruiting season. Learning to think like an investor from some of Oxford’s best – that’s an opportunity I’ll always be grateful for.”
