I’d kill to be at a BB, but I’m not at KPMG anymore or big 4 for that matter.

Honestly, I’d go do M&A finance at a tech company.

There are M&A finance roles specifically but could also look for corporate development analyst roles.

Come do tech M&A at SVB

Is that what you switched to? Can I get the elevator pitch?
