The boring stuff:
Indian male, IT work experience - 8 years
GMAT: 750
GPA: 3.1

Maybe interesting stuff:
Diplomatic background, grew up in 7 countries
Canadian education since high school
Worked in Silicon valley at 2 of the big name tech firms.
Good extra curriculars in university and post work.

The (I think) interesting stuff:
Co-founded an application development startup
Managed, hired, led employees and directed company strategy/product develpment
Had over 400K customers - in every imaginable country.
Sold the company to another tech firm!
Avid public speaker and exec of a toastmasters club

Motivation:
As I have a international background and I have successfully started and sold a company, I want to go to business school to develop the business knowhow to succeed further in the technology world. While running my previous company I sometimes felt my business skills were simply not there, although I had plenty technical skills. A lot of the business skills and knowhow I developed on the fly. But I want to fine tune them.

So want to go for entrepreneurship MBA.

School interested in:
INSEAD, LBS, MIT, Columbia, Rotman

So I think you certainly have a shot at these schools- now the timing is the issue right now- if you are looking at this year- then I would say you missed your big shot with R2 deadlines right here- you may do better to really do research this spring on these schools- go to webinars etc and then apply R1 next year for your best shot!
