Summer Internship: PE/Search Fund in US vs. Venture Capital in China
I'm a rising junior at a liberal arts college, interested in doing PE/VC. I would try to do IBD if I can't get in a buy-side right out of college.
I got two offers for the summer internship:
1. A new/small search fund pe firm at the stage of searching. My role would be doing industry research and sourcing the target companies.
2. A top 20 vc firm in China. My job would be following a director, meeting entrepreneurs with him, and doing some analysis of the companies.
I'm Chinese. Getting an intern in US is not easy, esp. a pe internship. I think the search fund internship is basically sourcing and research in the office. The vc internship is more like meeting with founders at their places. Both are good for me to understand businesses and industries. What do you think?
