    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?
    Thank you for your help and corrections!

    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.
