Hi! I've been in corporate life for the past 6 years andtook a new role last year in tech strategy & partnerships at a major bank due to burnout from my previous role. However, I realized that the work does not excite me and things move too slow at a large FI for work to have any meaningful impact, and I want to move back to a more fast-paced environment where I'll actually be able to build skills.
I'm in later stage interviews with a seed stage VC and so far the team seems great and the work interesting; I'll likely have to take a pay cut but it's worth it to me if I'm able to break into a new industry and gain investing experience.
I'd love to hear from Elphas who have made the same career jump or currently work in seed stage VC and are willing to share their perspectives.
Thanks so much!
