9781582072531: The WetFeet Insider Guide to Careers in Venture Capital

The venture capital world is made up of only a few hundred small partnership firms, usually employing between two and 40 people. These firms include the famous players -- Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, The Mayfield Fund, Bessemer Venture Partners -- along with many others. At first glance, these firms appear to be remarkably similar. They have few employees, lots of money to invest in entrepreneurial ventures, and they want to be part of the next phenomenally successful start-up. Despite these shared characteristics, each firm has adopted its own approach to succeeding in the competitive and risky world of start-up financing. Firms differ in fund size, regional focus, industry focus, and stage of investing. So, do you really want to work at a VC firm? And if so, how can you go about finding a job? This WetFeet Insider Guide will tell you what you need to know to make your job search efficient and effective.

In Careers in Venture Capital: The WetFeet Insider Guide, you'll learn answers to all of the following questions:

  • Who are the major VC firms, and how do they differ from one another?
  • What do venture capitalists do on a day-to-day basis?
  • What opportunities are there for MBAs and undergrads in the VC industry?
  • What does it take to land a job with a venture capital firm?
  • What do VC insiders like and dislike about their industry?
  • What's the difference between a type 1 error, a type 2 error, and a waffle dog?
