How to reach out to a VC for a job?

Hi, I have worked as an off-cycle intern with an IB's Wholesale Strategy division, focus area: Fintech investing.

I do not come from a target school and my profile is relatively not that strong, how do I target/reach out to a VC firm (in India)?
Say if I have to email or LinkedIn message them? What do I highlight, what do I write? They probably receive thousands of messages from people like me, how do I stand out? I believe there's got to be a way, because creativity does help sometimes.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
