Mr. South Asian Entrepreneur
Born and raised in South Asia. Went to MIT for undergrad. I worked at an MBB for the past three years and also ran a medical startup in parallel (that was able to raise a seed round recently as well as get FDA approval). Got promoted to the post-MBA role at MBB 6 months ago and mostly focus in digital and healthcare.
Undergrad School: MIT
Undergrad Major: Mechanical Engineering
Age: 25, Ethnicity: Asian or Indian
Extracurriculars: Founder of medical device startup with recent successful seed round

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 7 mos
Big Life Wins:
– Coming from a middle-class background, I had to support myself through college.
– Securing FDA approval for our medical device is the biggest validation of my work that I have ever received.
Post MBA Goal:
I want to use my MBA years to explore other entrepreneurial ideas fully so that I can either jump into entrepreneurship directly after my MBA or work in VC for a few years before making the shift.
Target School: Harvard
