GMAT - 730
Undergrad - B.Tech in Biotechnology (major) and Computer Science (Minor) (Undergrad) from IIT Guwahati (Top 10 in India)
GPA - 8.6/10 (Top 15% in my class)
Background - Indian - non IT Male
Total Work Ex - 5.5 years (~1 Year in IT consulting and ~4.5 years in )

Brief Summary

During my 2 month B.Tech internship at University of Strasbourg - France, I published a research paper on HIV in International Journal of Virology. I have spent almost 3.5 years in a early stage start-up , where I was the first Data Analyst to be hired and went on to lead the Analytics team as Associate Director - Data Analytics. I was also working on Central Growth strategy and helping the CEOs office in raising a $50 Million Series D funding. I am currently working in a mid stage startup as a Sr Manager in Strategic Business Planning Team, scaling and commercialising the Commercial Interior Design vertical and refining the Annual Operating Plan for the entire organisation. I have also worked with an IT MnC in India for about a year as a Validation Consultant for the Regulatory Domain in the Medical Devices Vertical where I was helping the clients as well as internal teams to create products compliant with the FDA rules. I have done volunteering work with an NGO for 2 months, during which I trained the students from Primary Government School to participate in city level competitions where the children secured top positions. I have also taken a few online courses on Data Science and a executive course on Project Management from IIMB, one of the top B schools in India. I can get recommendations from the Founders/CXOs in the startups which I have worked. My short term MBA goal is to get into a startup and contribute in a larger capacity or to join a VC firm or join a corporate strategy team of a big organisation. Long term goal is to start a business on my own.

Hi,
So it sounds like you have solid ingredients so far from what I know of you... respectable GMAT and grades, progression at work and exposure to a variety of topics, startup perspective, some NGO time (though that could be longer), and have thought some about your goals (note: I would not list VC for short term goal though just a heads up, since roles are so few and far between). When you say top 10, I assume you mean US?? I think you can aim for some top 10 options sure, and including a couple in top 20 as backup/safer options would be recommended as well. Most of my clients find time to apply to 3-6 schools per round, fyi, and R2 deadlines THIS year are coming up quick... good luck on the process and let us know if we can help further!
