WSO Podcast


In this episode, member Benioff The Third shares his unlikely path from a non-target school on the east coast to one of the top VC funds on the west coast. We learn how he broke into investment banking at a middle-market shop, why he lateralled to a bulge bracket in tech M&A and eventually why he made the leap to VC. Listen to some great tips on how to position yourself to make a successful transition into venture capital as well as how he got comfortable starting his own business after only one year in VC.
