Are there any career direction a software developer/ technophile can take to work as a VC ? Are there such jobs available to someone who does not have business or investment background ?

Become a tech journalist. Several have turned VC and one is now a legendary VC at a top tier firm. A business/investment background is not needed. The best VC's are entrepreneurs themselves.

Experience with startups -> MBA -> Associate -> Partner track

Also, how to become Venture Capitalist without ventures.

Of course you need V and C for VC , what I meant is without Personal Capital. More like a VC job than being an angel with a lot of money.
