How does one make the change? Any suggestions?

I’d love to work at a VC or tech incubator

    Go to HBS or GSB, be top of your class, and work your way up as an analyst. Or start a company worth hundreds of millions of dollars. That's about it for your options.

      Do analysts ever make it to partner? Most of the ones I know leave after two years (and yes, some even go to sales roles). Most new partners are long-tenured tech execs these days.

    1.Get rich and start your VC firm
    2. Become tech founder, get in VC circle and impress them
    3. Do both of above

    A lot of information in this thread is wrong. You are asking questions in the wrong forum. VC is changing a lot, moving away from the expert model.

    I agree that VCs are changing a lot. If you have a solid tech operating experience, you have a great chance!

      Quite honestly, you should only do this in Bay Area. Even Seattle is not on the same level.

    Network network network. Junior guys have banking or consulting backgrounds. Middle guys come from top b schools. If you don't have this pedigree, your big option is to show you can source deals. You can do this if your rolodex runs deep
