Candidate:

Mr. SpaceX

About Me:

I have had a highly technical career so far, being a technical expert in my current roles, but I have had the ability to change industries from physics/math to aerospace to automotive. I believe I’m uniquely suited to move into a career in venture capital/entrepreneurship in the green energy sector to make an outsized impact on climate change.

Title: SpaceX

Big Life Wins:

While working at SpaceX, I have seen the company go from not being able to land a rocket to regularly reusing them. I was one of the main contributors to the structural testing and methods that enabled rocket reuse.

Post MBA Goal:

My goal is moving into venture capital to really push change regarding issues that matter to me, such as green energy. Moving into electric cars was my first push towards this goal but there is only so much I can do as an engineer. Moving to the business side would enable me to pursue the opportunities that will arise as more green energy is needed
