Matt Klein, iX Alum

Equity Research Associate at Franklin Templeton

"Last summer I had a great experience working in corporate finance, and this summer I got to see a completely different side of the industry. Our teacher focused primarily on start up evaluation and taught us how to build efficient financial models to better assess investment risk. Today, I am working with a team of other iX students on a startup venture of our own. The startup has given me an environment to hone the skills I learned in the classroom."
