Was talking to a friend at a BB and he mentioned that, after your banking stint, you could be the CFO of a startup. My understanding is that this is because you'd understand capital structures, accounting, would know how to model, etc.
I think I'd love to work for a startup but am not convinced I'd like to be the CFO. Seems like the CEO is the one with the vision, who decides where the company's headed, and the CFO goes over how best to do X from a finance standpoint. Is this roughly right?
I'm sure it's tough to say but how hard would it be to go from BB banking-->CEO of a startup? Would the skills be helpful?
Seems like consulting would be a better background...
Thanks for the help,
