Q&A: 3.2 GPA -> IB -> PE -> VC
I've been a long time lurker on this site and decided to make an account and post an AMA as I think my insights could be useful. A bit about me but intentionally anon:
- Went to regional semi-target
- Did internships in middle market S&T, ~$2.5bn credit fund, no name M&A
- Graduated and went to work at no name tech IBD, was fired
- Worked in PE after being unemployed for a few months
- Made transition to VC
Bit on current role: Deploy in $100s of M per year, technology only.
I can answer questions about having a low GPA going into IBD, paths to VC, comparison from IB/PE/VC, getting internships in non-traditional ways (I was rejected from all major programs).
I hope this is helpful!
