Re: [newtech-1] interesting article in Fortune about how to get a job at a startup

VCs are forced to come in when risk is much higher. You can "work for a startup" and "get options" at any stage, it doesn't have to be early stage. Of course generally risk is proportionate to reward. Not many Google or Facebook millionaires came in at a time when success of the company looked anything like guaranteed.

if vc's have a 30% batting average, I don't think an average person will have better odds.

i say look for work that's interesting, challenges you, or pays well.  options should be the sugar on top.  if you luck out, great!
