What advice would you give to incoming MBA students? Follow your curiosity. Be open to the idea that what you thought your career would be is totally wrong. MBA programs turn into echo chambers- seek diverse viewpoints.

How did I become interested in venture capital?
From working in companies that took venture money. Before business school I worked for companies that cumulatively raised around 2 billion in VC and had exit values of over $20 billion. I saw how venture capital helped them reach escape velocity, I also saw how it ruined a couple other companies. I wanted to understand that system better.
