Admit it: You love the ring of ‘venture capital’ and ‘private equity.’
Enter Pitchbook, the ultimate resource for those looking for a future in PE/VC (and those looking for VCs to fund their futures).
Listen to the full recording of our conversation with Andy White, Senior Research Associate for Pitchbook for some great stats, info, and predictions that every PE/VC wannabe should know.
00:02:22 – PitchBook: Cat-and-mouse game or encyclopedia? (Or both?)
00:04:34 – “Top Universities Producing VC-backed Entrepreneurs.” Why this topic and why these schools.
00:07:54 – Several reasons that some schools just manage to produce more funding-receiving entrepreneurs.
00:13:55 – There is hope for you to get a PE/VC job if you don’t attend Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, Booth, Kellogg. But there is even more hope if you do.
00:19:11 – Another important factor for breaking into the VC industry: your pre-MBA work.
00:22:36 – Spreading the word about the world of VC & PE.
