Some common Q&A from this event:
For VC Lab, do you have to have a VC or finance background?
No, its an application process and the firms vary quarter to quarter, so each quarter it will vary on what firms are looking for.  Most are not necessarily looking for a VC or finance background, but may be interested in industry experience in a particular area.
What do MBA's typically do at a VC firm?
Recent MBA grads are going to be doing due diligence on markets and firm pitches, looking at pro formas, and doing some financial modeling.
