Mr. Corporate VC Hustler

About Me:

I am a young in career Corporate VC professional. Coming from a lower-middle-class family, I have had to learn on my own how to navigate the professional world. I did not come from a target school or banking but rather relied on my hustle and the graciousness of people taking a chance on me to get me to where I am now. I’ve always had a passion for business and a positive world impact. In high school, I made a video of me getting denied to all of the top schools (Stanford, Ivys, etc) and it ended up going semi-viral. It’s been an awesome platform to encourage others going through similar things.

    Hi Mr. Corporate VC Hustler, it’s Julie-Anne Heafey here with mbaMission. Hmmmm. There are some real glimmers of great things here, but I also have a number of questions. The first things that stand out are your grit and confidence. Heaven knows these are must-have qualities for anyone in the entrepreneurial (and VC) world. Second, your monster GMAT – wowza (though it raises questions about your low GPA). It also seems like you have a ton of initiative for launching efforts, though I’m not clear on how big they are, whether they’re lasting/growing, or what’s happened to them since your involvement. You’re only 24, so it’s hard to see what the track record on all your ventures is like from your …
