Before work grind, I had planned my retirement. It went something like this — Investing in a few startups, few years down — selling my stake to some corporate (that was too rigid to innovate, perhaps), and sleep on cash beds.

So I decided to work with a Venture Capital firm. Pretty sorted right? Nope!

While pursuing the ‘cliched’ MBA, and going through a bunch of VC profiles on Linkedin I realized — it isn’t going to be as easy as planning the imaginary ‘retirement’.

Set out to gather some experience (which I planned to show off to the HR at VC firms) and I started working with startups. Before finishing college ended up working with 7 startups — Okay, enough with the bragging!
