Private Equity Business Development Directors

Work Environment

Business development directors work in well-lit, modern offices. They spend much of their day on the phone with investors or traveling to meet them at their offices or hosting them at social events. This work can be interesting because you constantly meet new people and rewarding when you are able to keep the deal pipeline flowing with new investments. On the other hand, it can be stressful and challenging if you fail to attract new investors. In 2014, 51 percent of private equity and venture capital professionals worked at least 70 hours a week, according to the 2015 Private Equity and Venture Capital Compensation Report.
