After “trying on” a variety of internships and roles, including time in the public sector, Sydney Thomas realized she wanted to be the one making the decisions about where to invest money for the most impact instead of the person asking for the investments. It was her curiosity, networking and yes, those internships, that led her into the venture capital industry. Currently she works as an investment associate and head of operations at Precursor Ventures. In today’s episode of I Want Her Job: The Podcast we talk to Sydney about her path into venture capital and the scope of her current role. We also discuss her journey through 52 cups of coffee through her LinkedIn profile, her tips for turning connections into coffee dates and hear about some of her favorite productivity tips and apps.
