Hi Veritas,

I'm looking to get a sense of where I should apply for my MBA. I'm an entrepreneur looking to go back to school to specialize in a few areas that I think will help me expand my skill set and improve my team (management, strategy, marketing).

GPA: 3.8 (top Canadian university, finished first in graduating class for my degree - finance/econ)
GMAT: 750

Work Experience:

1 year as investment banking analyst @ NY elite boutique (was top bucket prior to quitting to do startup A)
1 year co-founder / COO of a startup that does $5M in revenue and is big in the social impact space (startup A)
2 years as co-founder/ CEO of a startup that has $10M in revenues, where I raised a >$1M venture capital financed seed round (startup B) at an 8 figure valuation and struck a joint venture deal with two other large companies
1 year as co-founder and VP Corp Dev of a startup that went public at a $30M valuation, raised $6M financing round and acquired startup B which was consolidated (startup C). Im the one that took it public + raised the cash + acquired startup B+ am working on a couple pretty sweet other deals, like a JV with Canada's largest grocery chain

Startup A is in the retail/fashion space and Startup B/C is in the genetics+personalized technology+lifestyle medicine spaces

Extracurriculars:

-Board of Directors of a pretty solid/large Canadian nonprofit aimed at helping younger kids become entrepreneurs
-founder of a nonprofit that raised $100K to help inner city kids get training as entrepreneurs
-founder of program which helps put students in touch with entrepreneurs
-ton of shit during university (president of clubs, etc.)

Id be grateful if you could point me in the right direction of what schools are reasonable to go for. Ill need help putting my application together because I dont have a ton of spare time.

Wow--quite an accomplished entrepreneur you seem to be. With a well crafted application, you could probably become attractive to just about any b-school. Canada is under-represented in US b-schools, so you'd have an advantage coming here if you want to. I'd look at Kellogg or Booth given the network you will want to build in proximity to Canada most likely, but for entrepreneurship, you could look to West coast schools too such as Berkeley or Stanford. Aim high because you have the achievements to qualify. Let us know if we can help you organize your story and package yourself for top schools.
