This is probably the one question that I get asked a lot and that I dread the most.
Why? Because to tell you the truth, I do not have a good answer – or I thought I did not, until I came across this posts.
These are from my peers and colleagues in this industry who are not only veterans at blogging but also know what they are talking about.
- Step one: Assume you will not be able to land a job as a venture capitalist.
- Step two: Understand the math. – This is important – see my other post on VC behave te way they do
- Step three: Get close to VC’s.
- Step four. Be smart about networking.
- Step five: Don’t get discouraged.
- Read about becoming a VC
- Read what the VCs are reading
- Get in the flow
- Prepare your resume
- Spam a lotMine your network
- Sneak(ing) in Strategically
Praveen Sahay who graduated from the Kaufmann Fellowship programme last year added his own two cents … and mentioned something that I think is very important: luck.
Ask any venture capitalist how they became one and most will say, “I was lucky to be at the right place at the right time.” Luck, indeed, plays a big role.
