I’m a UK based veterinarian and entrepreneur, graduating as a DVM equivalent in 2014. After three years in the veterinary field I made a seismic jump to business, ideating, developing and running multiple startups, all completely or heavily within the tech space. After some successes, I am looking to catalyze my career with an MBA at a top school.
