Wanted to get some thoughts from people on the forum about prospects of moving back to an investing role after leaving for a startup. Currently working as a 1st year VP at a large (upper MM) fund, where I've spent the past 3.5 years. I have an opportunity to move to an early stage startup (1.5 years old) in a senior strategy role. Startup is fairly well funded, and while obviously the guaranteed/fixed comp is less (albeit competitive), the upside is significant.
Would be helpful to understand how easy or difficult it is to move back to an investing role at my level, should this go belly up, as I look to weigh the pros/cons of the opportunity.
