I have an interview for an intermediate (~senior manager) portfolio marketing role with a small vc fund coming up.

I know very little about the VC world. What are some of the things to look out for? Key questions to ask? What do these roles typically pay?

I guess the basics of what pre seed, seed, series A, etc are would be a good start. Then I’d focus on specifics depending on what is the the main industry target for your VC. I’m sure they will ask about any startup in that sector you’ve been following, what are some trends you’ve seen in the market lately… I doubt it will be super technical, but knowing the basics will be a great first impression. Not sure what it pays, but if I had to guess $100-$140 would make sense. Cheers

Thanks! 100-140 seems low-ish compared to consulting. Why do people want to exit to vc? Or only the investment side is lucrative?
