Patent background for VC?
Hi, I have been particing patent law for 6 years and would like to transition over to VC or PE. I am currently in the process of applying to MBA programs. Does anyone know whether I would be able to go directly to a VC or PE firm after graudating with my MBA? Or would I need to work first in investment banking? The reason I ask is because the application essays ask for my long-term and short-term goals. I'd prefer not to list a short-term goal that is unrealistic. Thanks in advance.
