Well any MBB will do strategy/op work in Tech, and you may be able to get onto those sorts of projects.

CGI, Accenture, IBM, Deloitte, PwC....they all have tech consulting arms, but the reality of it (at least to me) is that for these firms they work more on big implementations and enterprise wide systems. Not necessarily start-up materials.

I would imagine you're better off getting a job with a tech company in the valley, and starting a website on the site (like TechCrunch) with your own edge. Gets you industry exposure and knowledge, and you get the reputation from working at an actual Tech company.

Plus, if I recall my Fortune magazine correctly, the Valley is pretty much against East Cost Consultants/PE these days. Probably 'cause we're all suited up...
