Tight shot

Benedict was put in charge of coordinating an important cross-border project with a public agency and a regional public counterpart. He took responsibility for the negotiations, resolved issues, and pushed the project to a successful launch.

Quest Ventures was my first full-time internship and it equipped me with valuable professional skills. I am grateful for the opportunities and trust afforded to me.

He also took on other responsibilities such as case analyses and preliminary due diligence for our investments into startups.
