On this project, we partnered with a General Partner and the Head of Campus Recruiting at Sequoia Capital and the CEO of Tula Technology. A team of 10 Analysts worked throughout the summer and into the year to create a go-to-market strategy for Tula. The team performed market research, industry analysis, financial analysis, and qualitative strategic analysis.

"The engagement was very well organized, from initiation through the delivery of a comprehensive final report... Bottom line, I was very impressed."

"You’ve truly proven to be an extension of our marketing team. The quality of the work and dedication of the team have been fabulous."


We conducted a project with a leading venture capital firm on the P2P lending market. We were tasked with trying to figure out what type of infrastructure needs to be built in the next five years in order to facilitate P2P lending on a larger scale. In order to complete this project we dove deep into the credit card market, home loan origination, and the lending arm of the financial services industry. We then traveled to the VC’s headquarters to deliver the presentation in person.

“The project was extremely well-executed, communications were clear and consistent, and deadlines were always met. Overall, we are extremely happy we chose to work with Cornell Venture Capital and will be implementing a number of changes based upon the team's insights” – NEA Analyst
