Our Five Cornerstones
Life at USA
TED SMITH, PRESIDENT
It was 15 years ago when, together with my partner Carter McClelland, we founded Union Square Advisors. In fact, we wrote the business plan for the firm – from scratch! – right on my kitchen table.
Our founding principles included a sincere belief in entrepreneurism, doing great advisory work with and across from successful technology companies, all while working with collaborative and respectful colleagues who believe that #CultureMatters.
“Today, our success is palpable, as we continue to punch way above our weight class in terms of transaction size and influence. These achievements are a direct result of our founding principles and a team of incredibly bright, talented and determined colleagues along the way. And we are just getting started!”
From the beginning, we knew that finding, attracting and retaining diverse talent would be critical to the firm’s success – as it leads to stronger teams and better business outcomes. This approach to talent is applied at all levels of hiring from our most junior summer analysts to the most senior bankers in our ranks.
“As we look ahead to the next 15 years, culture will remain a critical focus of our firm and our success. #CultureMatters”
Today, our success is palpable, as we continue to punch way above our weight class in terms of transaction size and influence. These achievements are a direct result of our founding principles and a team of incredibly bright, talented and determined colleagues along the way. And we are just getting started!
As we look ahead to the next 15 years, culture will remain a critical focus of our firm and our success. If this perspective rings true to you, I encourage you to apply to an open role where your skills align.

Interning at USA
by Caroline DunleavyAs a Summer Analyst at Union Square Advisors, I had the opportunity to develop strong relationships with mentors and leaders at the firm, participate and learn as a member of various deal teams, and develop knowledge and understanding of the technology and software landscapes. Additionally, I produced an intern project that included an investment thesis of a potential leveraged buyout target. Although my internships were just ten weeks, I experienced tremendous professional and personal growth. I felt the strong sense of team that is unique and special to USA. A highlight of my internships was the guidance that I received from firm leaders through USA’s mentor program. Being paired with a junior and senior mentor enabled me to learn about their experiences at various career stages and gain insights on day-to-day life as an analyst. I benefited from big-picture career advice from people who had been in my position. They truly wanted to see me succeed and reflected USA’s supportive team environment. Summer Analysts at USA are given real responsibilities on deal teams and are treated as valued members of the firm. I am grateful to return as a full-time analyst and continue to learn and grow alongside the USA team.
