Candidate:

Mr. VC Entrepreneur

About Me:

I am a 28-year-old white male. In my younger years, I neglected school for varsity sports, being a fraternity president, and a Bachelor of Sciences (BS). I hustled to land an International Baccalaureate (IB) gig. Loved/crushed it (also grew up). M&A -> VC. I enjoyed working with founder-led companies which led me now to entrepreneurship. I am self-taught in coding and mobile apps as a hobby.
– Why MBA: learn skills to lead a company. MVP app =/= viable business.

Details:

Undergrad School: Columbia University

Undergrad Major: English Literature

GPA: 2.8

GMAT: 780

Age: 28,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: NCAA D1 Varsity Athlete (College), President of Fraternity (College), Volunteer Crew/Lighting/Sound for Local Concerts

Work History:

Title: Investment Banking Analyst

Industry: Banking & Finance

Company: Boutique Firm

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Title: Venture Capital Associate / Senior Associate

Industry: Banking & Finance

Company: Boutique Firm

Length of Employment: 4 yrs

Big Life Wins:

– Succeeded as a national-level athlete throughout high school and college
– Received mountains of hands-on experience as an IB analyst on a lean M&A group. Worked on several sizeable transactions incl. advising sale/acquisition of both public/private companies.
-Later, as VC associate with ~250MM AUM firm, worked with portfolio CEOs to pivot strategy/restructure operations/explore M&A opportunities. Received promotion ahead of schedule. Offered additional promotion and career path within the firm — but weighing this against B-School/entrepreneurship.

Post MBA Goal:

– Interested in running my own business either immediately post-MBA or shortly thereafter. Think an MBA education will round out my skill set and help me succeed in this new chapter.
– Currently developing a couple of mobile apps (self-taught programmer) that I hope to continue work on while at school.
