London VC/Growth Path

Forum,

I am a first year analyst at an EB in London, and I am wondering how one may best position themselves to exit into VC or Growth PE after their analyst stint. I have decided that traditional buyout PE is no longer the career I want to pursue and would ideally want to exit to somewhere where I could experience a better lifestyle. My questions are below:

  • Is it a common path for IB analysts to exit to VC in London?

  • What steps can I take today to be a competitive candidate for top funds? Are there any materials you can recommend?

  • Who are the main players?

  • How much of a salary cut can you expect from Centerview / PJT / Evercore?

  • What is the lifestyle like at top VCs in London?

Apologies if this has already been covered.

Best,
Alex
