PhD for PE/VC
I am a rising sophomore at one of HK top3.
My end goal is to get into some sort of PE/VC/growth equity.
I know the most common way is to first go through ib and then recruit for pevc. But looking at my classmates who are all hardos with 4+/4.3 GPA and 3+ internships in thier freshman year, I'm pretty sure I have no chance of getting into investment .
So I'm just thinking, is there a different path?
How about phd/postdocs? Can they get into PEVC? (I know this route is not gonna be easy so I'm just asking and trying to get more info on it)
How difficult it would be for phd/postdocs to get into PEVC? Would you say this route is "viable"? Would you advise someone to do this?
My major is biology related (not sure if this info is relevant but I'll just include it...)
Sorry for my shitty English
