How to start your venture capital career

Why does this book exist?

Over the past few years, we've seen how venture capital has become a hot career track for top talents worldwide.

But it is still a world that is so hard to get into. We decided to change that.

If you are new to the VC industry, this book will help you build your skills, ace the interviews and excel at the job. If you are already in VC, you will find this book a resource to refer back to throughout your climb in the VC ladder.

About the makers

Our Mission

We want to make the world of venture more transparent & acessible. And help you break into it.

When we first came in contact with the venture world we didn't know a thing. The whole ecosystem was quite opaque and it's still very hard to break into as a lot relies on personal networks, your background and the business schools you come from. But over the years we have made our way into the scene and we are very passionate about it.

Our goal with this book is to share some of our experiences to help you start your very own venture capital career.
