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

Industry: Aerospace

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

Your year (2 upon matriculation) will serve you well to both contribute as well as learn. I can see why venture capital is attractive and while I definitely can see this as a part of your path – these positions are extremely difficult to come by post MBA.
