Big Life Wins:

I have recently established startup communities for quantum and biotechnology in India. This was a joint initiative between the government and my firm. I was responsible for heading this project. This project involved setting up incubation centres and educating investors regarding these traditionally underinvested industries in India.

Post MBA Goal:

Currently, I work at a seed-stage venture capital firm. Post the MBA I want to work for a venture firm that focuses on later-stage investments. There is a lot more portfolio support required at later stage funds, I want to use the MBA to build my operational skills and further enhance my business acumen.

    You know, Mr. Indian VC, there’s a lot to like here, from your strong GPA at Georgia Tech to your good GRE score, to your initiative and impact, to your experience in different geographies. I also really appreciate your thoughtful goals (where are you planning to work? btw). Wharton can be challenging to break into, but I think your chances are good with demonstrated fit with Wharton (do your homework) and a strong essay 2 (I think your essay 1 is clear from this). Good luck! Julie-Anne Heafey, mbaMission
