Finishing up my 2nd year out of UG, how risky would it be to take a role at a series B startup? Interesting BD/Investor relations role, just fairly unfamiliar with the startup world.

Pretty limited specifics as an internal person just reached out to me. I realize there are tons of variables that would play into this, but just wanted to get initial advice in whether this is worth pursuing or not.

Risky but this is the time to do it. Once you have a spouse, mortgage, kids and such it gets really hard to do a startup unless your spouse is the main breadwinner. So if you have to startup bug, go for it
