  • "I had a phenomenal experience at BGF. I was given a fantastic insight into growth equity investments from experts in the industry. We learnt about the different stages of investment and the processes that investors go through before acquiring equity in a business. My favourite part of the internship was presenting an investment opportunity to a mock investment committee."
