Currently a consultant at a B4, going to Stanford GSB in the fall, with goal of transitioning to VC. What are some steps I should take now proactively to best position myself for transitioning into VC?

For context, I do have startup experience (2.5 years founding a startup that I then left for consulting, startup is still going strong now with other cofounders, ~$30M in valuation). Most of work in consulting was technology strategy and some operations (cost-cutting, etc.).

Thanks in advance!

I have been looking at the curriculums for Harvard Business School's Master of Business Administration and Harvard Extension School's ALM in Management.

If I am not able to gain admission to Harvard Business School, but wanted a similar educational experience to become a consultant, should I attend Harvard Extension?
