Career Paths in Venture Capital: From Operator to Investor, Starting a Fund, and More

  • CIC - Boston 50 Milk Street, Floor 20, Lighthouse East Boston, MA 02109 (map)

Venture capital is a huge part of the startup industry by impact, but a tiny part when measured by headcount. From the other side of the curtain, VC may look like an "exclusive" profession, with few roles open to newcomers and limited options for mobility with a small number of firms.

During this session we’ll cover questions, such as:

  • Beyond "doing your time" at a firm and hoping a higher-level position opens up, what are the options associates, principals, and even partners have for advancing their career?

  • More firms are being created as seed-stage firms and "micro-VCs" proliferate, but how does someone take the leap to create such a firm?

  • What are the entry points to VC begin with?

  • And for founders or others with an "operators" background, what should you know before joining the investor side?

We've put together a panel of highly-experienced Boston VCs to answer these questions and more.

Speakers to be announced soon!

This event is part of the Investor Track at Startup Boston Week 2019.
