  • Hometown: Knoxville, TN


My name is Cade Seagle, and I am a Finance major at the University of Tennessee pursuing a career in Investment Banking or Private Equity. As a member of both the Chancellor’s Honors Program and the Heath Integrated Business and Engineering Program, I am encouraged to seek enriched academic challenges and develop my leadership capacity.


While academics and honors programs are important, taking initiative outside of the classroom has been crucial to my success. During my freshman year, I worked a part-time job and held an internship with Knox Wealth Partners as an Equities Analyst Intern. Taking on this internship with no prior financial knowledge or formal education was daunting. I was expected to quickly learn how to read SEC filings, conduct NAV and EPV valuations, and create investment thesis reports. After gaining experience in Equity Research, I wanted to continue exploring the financial industry. This led me to my Summer Internship with Battery Ventures.


At Battery Ventures, I sourced and led due diligence for potential minority investments in early-stage and growth-stage B2B SaaS (Business-to-Business Software-as-a-Service). This opportunity allowed me to develop my analytical skills and intuition as I developed investment theses and pitched potential investment opportunities to Battery senior leadership. The most fascinating part of this program was leading discussions with target company CEOs and Founders. After my sophomore fall semester, I am returning to Battery Ventures where I will perform deep due diligence on an assigned industry by building out a market map and extensive project deck.


Working in Tech Venture Capital has allowed me to see just how instrumental engineering is to the world of business. Learning about this intersection of business and engineering with my IBEP cohort will help me to better communicate with future co-workers, break down departmental silos, and develop my analytical skills and attention to detail. I was also drawn to the program for the community of like-minded individuals who are focused on improving various industries. Overall, I am extremely excited to be a part of this great community while learning about business and engineering.


In the future, I would love to utilize my work ethic, resilient personality, and skills gained through my internships to pursue a full-time career in Investment Banking, Venture Capital, or Late-Stage Private Equity.
