Mr. Indian Student

About Me:

I am an Indian student and intend to apply in the 2020-21. I am passlionate about tech in business and its potential to give smaller businesses a fighting chance. In order to expose myself to the ground realities of businesses I have worked as an independent consultant with private companies in the manufacturing, construction and hospitality spaces, helping them in areas such as cost efficiency, proposal analysis, business development, tax law compliance, etc. Further, to acquaint myself with problems faced by people in lower social strata and to help them, I have worked with an NGO for the past 3 years.
