Move from Search Fund to Investment Banking?

I have just got an offer for a very small search fund as an analyst. Would working at very small search fund provide valuable experience I can leverage to get into investment banking. It only started 2 years ago and they have only done one deal so far.
 

I studied Finance from a non-target and just graduated. I have one asset management internship but have been struggling to get any offers or even second interviews in banking.
