Non-traditional exit opportunities?

Currently a second year IB analyst at a MM shop in NYC, and wondering what attractive exit opportunities there may be apart from PE/HF.

Primarily interested in something strategy oriented with a high-growth company. Understand corporate development is somewhat aligned here, and in the right scenario I would be open to that, but would more so like to have exposure to broader strategy and not be restricted to asset acquisition/divestment.

Appreciate any help and more than willing to provide additonal detail if that would be helpful.

Beam Suntory (and some other CPG companies) hires former bankers into their Strategy group and some of them end up switching to marketing eventually. There's a guy who used to be an IB analyst who's head of Jim Bean or something now

Some sports teams also hire former bankers for their strategy / analytics departments. I know the NBA hires former bankers and consultants if you're willing to make like $80-90K in NYC
