I am currently in the M&A team of a big four Corp Fin group seeking to transition to PE/VC.
During the few interviews with PE/VC, a constant hurdle I have been facing is that interviewer will always challenge me: How could we know you could transit from a "deal executioner" to "investor"? How could we know you can make sound investment decisions since you haven't done it before?
How do you guys answer this question and successfully convince the interviewer? Thank you for your thoughts.
