Growth Equity - Outlook/Routes in
I am an associate working in VC/GE at a shop with a solid brand. Focused at Series A-C. Although I will likely see more A/B as market is less active currently at later stages.
Would like to work purely in growth (viewed here as B+). Hiring market is pretty dead right now, (with intense competition for any seats that come up), but in mid-term would like to transition into a more growth focused role.
Assuming a deal sheet more geared more toward A/B, but having spent time on cases at C and up, what can be done to best set me up for a growth role, and how do you see the chances of success and ability to get into a strong brand.
Some things I have considered: Applying to roles as an experienced hire (which growth hire out of), or even ; ; lean in on a sector specialism and leverage this to shift into a more sector focused growth fund.
Outlook on GE more broadly from anyone there?
