I started doing what I'm doing with the original plan of being the first step on my way to doing VC. Now I realize I can't make a direct transition. However, I may have a shot at working for the "New Business" arm of a major corporation that would provide exposure to wide ranging group of companies. Would be a very cool experience, I think, and would certainly make for a better transition.
Does anyone have experience or knowledge relating to a position like this? Clearly the comp is less and the investment process less dynamic, but beats the pants off going to b school.
