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 /?
What is the lifestyle like at top VCs in London?
Apologies if this has already been covered.
