Mr. Private Equity To Ed-Tech
I have 4.5 years of experience in private equity at a US$1bn + fund in LATAM (1 year) then left to co-manage a small VC fund (spent 1.2 years there; US$5mm AUM) in Mexico. Once that fund was fully invested, I left to join a starting PE fund and worked for 2.5 years there (4 promotions across work history). Recently, I joined an energy start-up in the US to gain more international experience prior to my MBA.
