One key asset to have to position oneself for Venture Capital is to have startup experience. Learning how to survive and operate in entrepreneurial settings makes for a much more credible VC. To this point, Ashish Chordia (my friend and a second year Wharton student) has written an interesting article on his search for a startup internship for the summer.
Much like me, Ashish spent the last few months before summer looking for that perfect summer internship in a startup. While nothing in life is perfect, he did manage to maximize his time doing something that he really loved and learnt a lot from.
His article should be a great read. Check it out.

And that is NOT Ashish in the picture in that article.
Also, he will be a guest writer on this blog so look out for his experiences in Startup Land! He has an interesting blog going on his time at Wharton at: http://lifeatwharton.blogspot.com/
