Breaking into the VC world

I'm a recently-furloughed operations executive at a startup in Boulder, Colorado. I've updated my resumé, spruced up my LinkedIn profile, and networked my ass off. The next FTE role will likely be several months away, so I'm channeling my patience. While I continue networking (I have a contact outreach goal per day), I've thought a lot about what I want my career to look like over the next 10-20 years. As I discuss with executive recruiting firms my desired next role as a COO for a SaaS startup or scale-up, Ive determined I want my pre-retirement swan song to be a venture capitalist. What experience do you suggest I get, either in my next role or via mentorship and apprentice work from active VCs? Thank you!
I was interested in this topic as well. Crickets in responses.
Heyaa! I am late here but better late than never. I dug some old threads and saw your note @sfkts - I looked at your post history but can't see anywhere that you post sth about getting into VC? It's 1.5 year later but how did it all pan out for you?
@sfkts if I find anything out, I'll holler!
Connect with VCs in your area, with an intro email that is personalized to the receiver. Or get a warm intro to someone, but well-written cold emails work just as well. Understand their portfolio (look on Crunchbase, Pitchbook, or their site), and then suggest any companies that they should take a look at that they may not be aware of. Make an intro to that company if they're interested. VCs always looking for next big thing-- be helpful that way. The more you do it, the more on top of mind you will. Build those relationships over time
Thanks @lauran74!
