MBA Silicon Valley, East & Global Finals
LinkedIn, Partnership Development @ Hilton
“Prior to obtaining my MBA, I worked in the live music industry for Live Nation. Although venture capital was relatively unfamiliar territory for me, I became intrigued after hearing captivating stories from my roommate, who worked for a healthcare startup in LA. Little did I know that the VCIC Fellowship would become the catalyst for an extraordinary transformation in my career journey.
“Being part of the VCIC Fellowship was a truly eye-opening experience, immersing me in the world of venture capital like never before. In an impressively short span of time, I absorbed an abundance of knowledge, thanks to the exceptional guidance of Patrick and his ability to bring MBAs up to speed during our class sessions. But it wasn’t just the formal instruction; it was the camaraderie among my peers, the inspiring VCIC competitors, and the insightful judges (VCs) that expanded my understanding even further.
“The UNC MBA program’s VCIC Fellowship is truly one-of-a-kind. Nowhere else could I have gained such a comprehensive understanding of the venture capital industry. As I reflect on my journey, I am confident that without the VCIC Fellow program, I wouldn’t have been as well-prepared to embrace my VC internship during my second year of MBA.
“For those aspiring to break into the world of VC post-MBA, I wholeheartedly recommend the VCIC Fellows program. It’s not just a program; it’s an empowering and transformative experience that equips you with the tools and network to embark on an exciting career in venture capital. Embrace the journey and prepare to reach new heights in your professional life. The VCIC Fellowship will undoubtedly be your springboard to success!”
