I (Jason) get asked often how I got into venture capital and how interested folks may get involved as well.
I always tell them that I "fell" into the job, as most folks that I know who are VCs and that everyone has a different and unique story.
I then point them to my partner Seth’s blog post on the subject which I think is the best written authority on the subject.
Today, however, I received a paper that one of my students, Judd Rogers, wrote on the subject. He takes Seth’s thoughts and puts a little bit of analytical muscle behind the subject. It’s an interesting read for those wanting to know potential career paths toward VC.
