I’m looking to join a startup after undergrad but I have a few questions/concerns that I’d like to get some people that transitioned from FO finance roles to chime in on. They’re about but not limited to things like what they do in their respective startups, how they switched, the easiest pathway, etc.
I have to get 250 words to be able to post this so I guess I’ll just give a bit of info so people can see where I’m coming from.
I’m a Business Analytics major at a school in Boston that is relatively well known for its business program. Honestly it’s not that hard to find out which one if you stalk my reddit profile. I want to go into startups and potentially early stage VC later on but I understand coming in from a business degree is almost useless because why would you hire bring on a business analyst that has no business experience? Doesn’t make sense. That’s why I’m looking into IB/PE, I figure I do the 2-3 years, get some experience, then either start my own venture or join someone else.
I think that’s 250 words. Should suffice.
