Mr. Irish Biotech Entrepreneur

About Me:

I founded my University’s Biological Society and lead it for 2 years, in a roundabout way leading to co-founding a protein engineering startup with a senior Biochem lecturer. I’m happy with what I’ve achieved and believe that a strong business education will set me up well for the future. I am a 1st Gen Graduate, self-funded through college (Bar work).

Big Life Wins:

I have been entirely responsible for business development strategy and execution in my protein engineering startup. $1m or so raised in funding, secured significant industry partnership with a top 10 multinational in our space, multiple awards, letters of intent to purchase, etc. Unfortunately, our technology has not been able to follow through.

Post MBA Goal:

I would like to work in Venture Capital post-MBA, to give me some experience from the other side of the table. I also have ideas for new ventures that I would like to investigate either during my MBA or further down the line.


Target School: Harvard

Status: Open

Considering: Wharton, Kellogg, Yale, Ross
