Mr. Corporate VC Hustler
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.
