My goal is to work on the buyside (public markets) as an investment analyst – particularly at a fundamental/value-oriented fund. Since buyside jobs are extremely hard to get, I was thinking of going for IBD straight out of MBA because the recruiting process is more structured and it is well known that IBD can lead to buyside within a few years.

I worked at two large tech companies (think MSFT,AMZN etc)and compared to banking it’s basically a much slower path to the top, and the salaries aren’t as top notch.

I’m in my 75’s and work in corporate/business development at a post-IPO tech startup. I’ve been there since the pre-ipo days and report directly to the CEO. When I joined the company I basically did everything business…sales, marketing, bus dev. Now the company is much bigger and has departments for each function.

It’s a much broader role than being an analyst or associate in IB/PE/HF – and at a startup you really have to be a jack-of-all-trades rather than just an Excel jockey.

To sum up, is it still possible today for a person from a random background to break into the world of startups, like the people in the above scenarios, or has the world of startups become as structured and pedigree based as finance?

Our CEO was one of the first investors in the company and was on our Board as an investor long before he took over the CEO role. Before that he had also been the CEO of another company, similar to Tony Hsieh at Zappos.

Possible but not likely. Most people from legal backgrounds get into IB first if they want to do corporate development eventually.

My advice for bankers who want to go to the corporate side and work for a tech company is to work in product marketing if you can. Doing deals is really easy. Creating a product from nothing and generating revenue out of it is hard. If you really want to climb the ladder, then you need to actually be responsible for a product. If you can generate revenue for your company, then they will let you do whatever you want after that. The best corporate development people I know in the tech industry all came from product management backgrounds, not ibanking.
