Current sophomore trying to figure out what I want to do with my life!!?

hey guys! first time posting so idk if I'm doing this right, but I recently got an offer with a small tech-focused vc arm that's def full of super smart people but obv not "prestigious" or with a big name for vc (am I prestige whoring yikes). I don't even know if I want to do vc in the future, and still want to be able to potentially position myself for IB recruiting for junior year. I go to a target school but sophomore recruiting sucks and the vc work does seem itself interesting. If I take the vc position and decide I want to go for IB junior year, would this position put me at a disadvantage?

Echoing the comments above - take the VC internship. Life is too short not to explore and it will also help confirm whether you would like to do VC or not.
