.jobs -- Cut To The Chase

I’m delivering a webinar next Tuesday for Harvard Business School Career Services on “How to Work with Private Equity and Venture Capital Portfolio Companies”.  Among the topics I’m covering:

– Raise capital from a venture capital fund to found a company

– Partner with a private equity fund to find a company to buy or found

– Get a job at a private equity/venture capital portfolio company

– Earn extra income (while keeping your full-time job) by participating in expert networks

– Join a senior advisor network

– Join a portfolio company board

I’d value any feedback you have on my draft deck, embedded below. If your main focus is VC/startups, see John Gannon’s venture capital jobs site and Christina Cacioppo’s startup and job resources.

    Thanks for publishing this resource. It’s always interesting to see what VCs are looking for from entrepreneurs and the generaly thought process of a VC. One thing I was curious about is: what markets are VCs generally looking to invest in. Many VCs specialize in a few industries or stages of growth, but are there certain (untapped) spaces like education, for example, that VCs are looking into more these days?
