Advice for a Y3 woman in VC

This is completely anecdotal.

This applies to if you’re 50 or 21. Your third year is your third year. There are three things I would do if I were starting my third year in VC.

You made it. I’d say 70% of people don’t end up staying - which means you’re starting to think long-term about:

1) What you like

2) Who you like

3) Who you are

In general, you should first check out Freshman Year. It does probably apply more to the general umbrella of less-than-fifth-years, I fear, but you know this blog is more of a workspace anyways - so I’ll get around to restructuring it one day. Regardless, I have one specific point I consider crucial for anyone identifying in a minority in VC and has decided to stay in it very long-term, especially individuals that enter as a GP off the bat.

There are two things to focus in your career.

Credibility.

Founder Friendliness.

These are your keystones to a successful career in VC. If these are your north-stars, you might even have the mental, social, and professional flexibility to maybe come up with, or find someone, who thinks outside-the-box enough to have a career-defining change.
