PEAK6 Strategic Capital Boot Camp - Summer 2019
PEAK6 is a leading investment firm headquartered in Chicago. More than 20 years ago, PEAK6 was started with a simple premise: to apply technology to make the options market operate more efficiently—and to realize great financial returns in the process.
More than two decades later, we invest in, own and start businesses that allow us to apply our unique blend of technology and operational expertise to make industries and businesses perform better.
We’ve done everything from transforming a flagging clearinghouse that now powers the future of fintech to teaming up with U.S. Soccer on analytics to building a billion-dollar digital options brokerage from scratch.
And here’s where you come in. We’ve developed a dynamic, high-intensity, internship-meets-interview boot camp for students interested in learning how to invest in and operate businesses.
Here you can accelerate your career by participating in a rigorous two-week program with other ambitious students like yourself from around the country.
No operational or business strategy experience? No problem. We love the curious, ambitious, and the bold, and are prepared to teach you.
This is a comprehensive, educational experience with a focus on operating and growing a business. At our discretion, PEAK6 may extend full-time job offers to the top performing participants in our boot camp to be a Strategic Capital Junior Associate.
You’ll start the program immersed in rigorous training focusing on financial valuation, marketing strategy, term sheet and negotiation basics, developing operational playbooks, and much more. Simultaneously, you will have access to PEAK6 leadership through scheduled founder, investor and CEO lunch and learns and fireside chats. In the next phase of the program, you’ll apply what you’ve learned via real-world case studies and operational plans for active PEAK6 positions and companies of interest.
Here at PEAK6, we encourage innovative thinking and we reward fresh ideas. We’re so interested in what you have to say that you’ll be given multiple opportunities to brainstorm alongside industry experts and present your findings to the PEAK6 leadership team.
When: Monday, August 12th to Friday, August, 23th
Where: PEAK6 Offices, Chicago, Illinois (Historic Chicago Board of Trade Building), we will provide housing and a cost-of-living stipend for the duration of the program.
