Before you apply, understand our principles

Give to receive

We’re not just a project platform. 70% of our projects get sourced from the community. That means: If you want to work on exciting projects, activate your own network and bring some for other talents as well!

You need experience

Sorry, juniors – our clients require a minimum of 3+ years relevant working experience in M&A, Strategy, or Private Equity. But please do apply when you have reached that threshold!

Be good, be free

We have a strict no a**hole policy – for clients and talents. Even for the highest achievers and most experienced A-players. Our talents are the best in the market, that’s why we don’t decide their rates. You negotiate with your client. We’re just holding hands on both sides of the table.
