Corporate VC is very different from traditional VC in most cases, and it’s unlikely the experience will create much leverage wrt exit opps to a big shop. That said, it could be a good experience. I would talk to the team to learn more about the work before committing to a rotation

I don't think my chances are great for a mega fund just undergrad from a good school with VC internship my senior year at a small fund. No IVY/Stanford/MIT connections. I loved my time in VC and would like to re enter the space in some capacity i.e. Tech Stars or being an angel investor in the future

Go for it .

If you're looking to exit in a year (specific time) and you're looking to exit to VC specifically, I don't see why you'd turn down the internal opportunity. As others pointed out it's not great leverage for a VC exit, but it's gotta be a better stepping stone than from broader consulting, right?

Audit Partners — Do you see longterm profitability of audit in general? Is it going to be worth being a partner, financially, given the risk you take on, in 10-15 years? With audit bids increasingly being driven way down by competition, & lower level resources demanding (much) higher pay than it was historically, I’m not convinced the partner track is still as enticing as it was pre-Covid. Seems like the job market/higher staff pay alone has GOT to be taking a huge cut into partner pay.
