Profile Evaluation - 1st Generation Entrepreneur [#permalink] New post 13 May 2014, 09:29
GMAT : 690 (Q47 V39 AWA 5.0)

Major : Engineering from Mumbai University
Year : 2011
Grade : 66% overall aggregate

Work Ex : 3.5 years out of which I have worked for 2 years in India's largest IT consultancy, which I left to devote all my energy and time to my own company that I helped found with my father in 2011.

Work Description : In 2011, me and my father set up our own company in the field of tyre distribution and retail. I took over control of the business processes while my father concentrated on building our sales channels. In these 3 years, we have registered more than 100% growth in revenue each year and have become one of the top names in the tyre retail business in our region.

I was responsible for setting up and executing an e-commerce model for our business, which has become one of our main channels of revenue, contributing almost 10% to our overall sales each year. In the tyre industry in India, e-commerce is still an unconventional approach to selling, so you could say that we are pioneering this channel for our industry. I helped set up various processes for the business such as inventory management ,credit management and implemented an ERP system for the business.

We are also currently in the process of exploring new-age ideas such as tyre retreading (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retread), which, although is very common worldwide, is fairly new to India. I am personally overseeing this project and expect it to add tremendous value to our brand over the years.

Post-MBA Goals :
Currently, our business is growing at a frantic pace and I see a lot of potential to not only become one of the top names in our industry worldwide, but to also introduce newer channels of selling (such as direct marketing, e-commerce) to this industry in India. In this regard, my target is to study various trends in this industry world-wide, develop contacts in the industry, and hone skills to take my business worldwide. I want to build a brand and for that it is important for me to have the best set of skills that will help me realize this goal.


Extra-Curricular:
  • I was the chairman of the cultural festival of my college, and lead ~200-300 students to help organize our annual cultural fest.
  • I was an active member of various student chapters such as IEEE, CSI and helped organize various workshops and events.

Plan to apply : R1 2014

Targets :USNews Rank 10-20 (Need help here, I'm not sure what schools I can target with my profile)

Thank you.
