Applied Economics & Management '20

Christophe Gerlach


Network of Friends.

My favorite CVC memory was our end-of-semester Pines burger challenge. It is always awesome getting to know people you work on intense projects with in a more informal setting, especially when most of us come from such different backgrounds and always find a way to learn and grow from each other. I am really grateful to CVC for facilitating friendships that I would never have made otherwise, and hopefully a network of friends that lasts past Cornell.

After my freshman year, I worked for a hedge fund in the DC area doing equity research. After my sophomore year, I worked for NEA (one of our clients) in the NEA Next program, where I did finance and strategy for The Players' Tribune, one of their portfolio companies. After my junior summer, I will be interning for General Atlantic, a tech private equity firm in NYC.


Outside of classes, I enjoy playing soccer, snowboarding, and eating food.
