How do i enter in VC at an analyst position (pre-MBA). I have been working in a consulting firm (focused on healthcare. Not MBB) in India for the last 2 years and have applied on the career portals/cold emailed multiple VC firms. I havent received any response till date and was wondering what would be the right way to go about this since its a very small network in India . Any lead or guidance is appreciated.
Thanks.

Usually headhunters would approach you if your LinkedIn is updated and your profile matches the firm’s criteria.

I’d recommend reaching out to them over mail or connecting with them on LinkedIn if they are not reaching out to you.

Thanks for your reply. Do you happen to know the names of any of these headhunters ?

I’ve seen headhunters from Michael Page posting a lot about opportunities in the space.
