An Insider's view of BCG Digital Ventures

What’s the vibe like in the office?

DV New York is a tossed salad of disrupters, entrepreneurs, and innovators, all of whom are experts in their field. It's been a one-of-a-kind experience to be constantly expanding my perspective from working with peers who are so passionate about their trade, and also be able to teach others about my own subject matter expertise.
