Can anyone speak to the presence of impact investing across PE versus VC or HF?

For context, I’m going for my MBA next fall (targeting M7) and want to pivot into impact-focused finance but am struggling to understand which option is best. I’m going in with 3 years of tech consulting experience (data & analytics) in the financial services industry.

I am 40 this year and just made director. Was in industry for 8 years, post MBA but never joined strategy, a mistake for the short run In hindsight. Need advice on if it’s too old to make EP at some point. I am in Canada so it’s a longer path. Am I too old? Also - how do I skip income partner, seems most companies are pushing most folks to go through IP to goto EP. Real advice and thoughts would be welcome.

I entered law school in my late 30's as a second career. I have strong pre-law experience (Executive of small company, 60 employees, $4m budget, MBA, etc.) and law school credentials (Top 10%, Managing Editor of Law Review). I'm willing to make less coming out of school than I did before, but want to ultimately land as in-house counsel with a decent wlb and make $200k+. I'm looking for advice on the best path to get there and how long I can expect it to take.
