Narrowing down potential Tech-VC firms to work at

Hi guys,

I have ~2 years of offshore-IB exp in TMT and was considering switching to VC in my country. I have a list of 60 Tech-VCs narrowed down based on the city I want to work in. Before I begin reaching out to people to get to know more about their firm/strategy/comp, I was wondering how should I filter/prioritise the list and approach people in said order.

Feel free to share any other tips that you consider helpful (either for me or someone else who searches for this topic) such as what questions to ask people when researching.

Many many thanks in advance!
