VC internships are not easy to come by — and there’s some obvious reasons why:
Experience — The best VCs have a wealth of experience under their belt in a particular sector or industry to help provide targeted advice and contacts to portfolio companies. Arguably, experience is something you cannot teach.
Skill set — VC requires both hard and soft skills; the best VCs can financially model, infer the technical inefficiencies of a product, charm a conference floor, and maintain a vast, focused network. Again, this is a difficult skill set to have developed by your twenties.
