Your GMAT is a strength. Your GPA is a weakness, unless your converted it and the conversion doesn't reflect the quality of your work. The fact that you founded and are running a successful business is also a strength.

Yes, schools will wonder if you can perform in an academic setting because of your GPA. For more information, please see "MBA Admissions: Low GMAT/GPA."

Good luck!
