Tiger Global & Bain

Aside from DD's, what kind of projects do Consulting firms like MBB do with VC's / Crossover Hedge Funds / Growth Investment firms? 

"Tiger employs an army of Bain consultants."

"[Tiger Global is] very clear on what they don't do. They stay out of your hair, they don't take board seats, they're not going to tell you how to run your company," Outreach's Medina said. "They tell you, 'We're going to give you money, and we're going to make Bain available to you,' which is very expensive - that could be alone between half a million to a couple million dollars."

I think it may be that once TG invests the mgmt team can request help from Bain for like strategic projects. For example let's say they want to enter a new market or launch a product and want some consultant help, they may ask Bain to analyze the market or help them come up with some sort of plan for launching their new product. Whatever else Bain may do is probably listed on their website. Tiger seems to just offer their port co's the ability to hire Bain and Tiger seems to pay the bill

if a portco needs bain's help with something, tiger will foot the bill. simple as that. win-win-win for everyone - the portco gets free advice from a top consulting firm, tiger helps its portco without having to expend resources on a specialized ops team, and bain gets exclusive access to clients that have a decent likelihood of succeeding with tiger's backing, without sacrificing on price

Has Tiger ever hired from MBB (or other Tiger cubs for that matter)? Asking because they must hold consultants in pretty high regard to offer this to portcos no questions asked.

"Second, Tiger employs an army of Bain consultants. As a result, Tiger doesn't have to do its homework on the fly; it's done it in advance" sounds like Bain does CDD stuff for them too, not just portco stuff

No. They hire consultants because they know their own analysts' time is way more valuable and it would be too expensive to get them to do the boring and non-investment decision-making work that Bain gets paid to do.
