    end up in/with

    It was a low-growth, no-risk scenario, but you ended up with a different sized business.
    Is "in" and "with" interchangeable here?
    If I make any mistakes in English, please let me know! Please! Thank you!

    No, only with is right. If you end up with something, the something is what you get as a result.

    And if you ended up in a different business, you would have left one company to work for another.
