After my last company sold, I had the good fortune of meeting the folks at a relatively small VC firm based out of Salt Lake City, UT. They seem to have a good reputation, and they've made some interesting investments.
After a few conversations they asked me if I'd be interested in their EIR position. I would split my time 60/30 between working with their portfolio companies and working on my own ideas, and I would be compensated for my time.
My question: is taking this sort of position at a small VC good or bad for your career? Would you take it?
Any input is much appreciated!
