Mr. Social Entrepreneur
I became an education entrepreneur a few months before graduation in 2011. I ran the startup for 8+ years. Post shutting my startup in March 2019, I joined a development sector organization focused on enabling entrepreneurship across India in senior mgmt. I will have 10 years of work experience by the time I land up in the US if I get an admit.

My long term goal is to go be an entrepreneur again but in the short run, I believe roles in and around startups (leadership roles in mature startups, impact/early-stage VC, etc.) would be most ideal.
