Been a long time reader of WSO and I have to say it has been helpful. I thought I would give way to those wanting tomore to ask questions. Quick background: sr. associate at a corporate vc fund ( ) in an emerging market. Have a total of 4 years experience; 2 spent in a biz dev role with a growth phase startup, 2 as an investment analyst in a diversified holding co in their early stage portfolio, set up the whole operation from scratch alongside MD. Been almost a year in my CVC role and again I was called on board to build the operation with a senior corporate officer- it's a small market with a few professionals so although I had it easi( ), I wouldn't say I had it easy-. CS undergrad from a good school in said region.
Direct any questions and let's see what I can answer without giving myself away.
