MBA candidate at Harvard University

Consulting, Market Research, Private Equity, Financial Valuation

Bio

Hi! I'm a first-year business school student at HBS. Having worked in both consulting and private equity (across a range of industries and function areas), I'm now pivoting towards industries and companies with more of a sustainability focus, with a particular interest in the alternative meat/dairy space. Outside of academic or professional interests, I enjoy playing typical sports like soccer and tennis as well as less typical sports like spikeball and pickleball. I also love board games, reading, watching F1, and watching TV/movies!

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Product/Industry Case Study

In this project, you will select a particular company (or even industry) to analyze from various angles. We will leverage different frameworks to understand what determines success in this instance, how to build a lasting competitive advantage, and what threats may appear on the horizon. The final product will be a document or presentation summarizing your key findings.

Company/Stock Pitch

In this project, you will choose a publicly traded or privately valued company (depending on your audience) to pitch as an investment. We will look at the underlying financials of the business, the company's current product portfolio and strategy, as well as the broader market to understand what makes it an attractive investment opportunity. The final product will be an investment memo outlining the investment thesis, key merits and risks, and underlying analyses.
