Venture Capital and Growth Equity: Pipeline and Industry in general
I'm wondering if anyone has any insight into getting into VC or growth equity out of undergrad. Is there a proper pipeline to get into one or is it all based on who you know/previous work. I find VC really interesting but from everything I've read, it seems as though to work as an analyst out of undergrad you really have to know someone. Also, I'm currently interning at a PE firm and from people I've talked to they all seem to say that PE is a smarter choice than VC but I just don't find it super interesting. Growth Equity seems to be similar to both and kind of a mix of the two. Does anyone have some insight into the relation of growth equity to VC and PE? Also, any insight into the pipeline process would be very appreciated.
