My startup failed. Is it possible to break into VC as a former unsuccessful founder or do I need an MBA?
I started a company my senior year of college in the CPG food space. Long story short is we spent a lot of time and money in R&D and by the time we launched Covid-19 hit and everything went downhill from there.
My startup was largely unsuccessful from a sales standpoint, however we did accomplish quite a bit and it is a very sellable story. I'm very interested in getting into VC, specifically a firm with an Ag-Tech focus because I know the space. I have a finance degree from a non-target and a not-so impressive GPA.
Is it possible to freshen up on my modeling skills and recruit for VC analyst positions or should I try to get into a decent MBA program and recruit out of there? I appreciate any insight.
