Mr. F500 Tech PM
High achiever before college (4.0 and student president for 2 years), after going into college, I got involved with a startup that I founded. As the startup grew (10 employees), it took precedence over my studies, and as a result, my grades tanked. Now work at a Fortune 500 and manage a team of 12 to expand our company into new markets.
