Growth Equity / VC ... What's the appeal to juniors?
At a techand would like to start thinking seriously about exits. The obvious buyside opportunities from my group lie majorly in the GE and VC space, very few tech buyout shops. Unfortunately, I'm interested in the financial engineering aspect of buyout but have heard GE / VC is very light on that function and is closer to a sourcing role at the junior level. Obviously depends on the shop, but can someone shed light on what the attraction is to GE / VC other than conceptualizing growth stories? What technical work is typically done?
