We were also invited by Mckinsey and Duke Medicine as a speaker to the International Partnership for Innovative Healthcare Delivery.
After graduating from college, I worked in Citrix Systems as a Software Developer for 3.5 months.
I worked part-time alongside college for 2.5 years in a software company. I started as an intern and then eventually moved on to taking commercial projects for the company on contract basis. I helped them start the mobile software department, hiring and training people. I also was the team leader for the department and was heavily involved in dealing with the international clients.
I also worked on a startup which worked to refurbish old computers and provide them to the needy.

Aim: I want to join a venture capital working in the area of technology. After working there for 4-5 years, I want to start up my own technology firm. My firm would provide free or subsidised services to NGOs while earning revenues from corporate sales. I want to use technology to make quality education more accessible to the underprivileged.
I would like to know:
1. How my profile looks for an MBA from the top B-schools like Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Booth, LBS, Columbia, MIT, Kellogg, etc?
2. What, in your opinion, are my strengths and weakness reflected in my profile?
3. Please mention what should I do to make my case stronger for final call.
4. Which schools do I most stand a chance of getting admitted to if I apply for the class entering 2014?
My first time here since I recently decided to pursue an MBA. I'm looking for one of the top B Schools in Asia eg. Nayang, NUS and the likes.
I'm currently pursuing CA having completed articleship from a big4 firm. I have one group of the final exam left to clear which I hope to do in Nov (fingers crossed!)
Other background includes being organiser for a TEDx for the past 3 years.
Do you think this is sufficient to have a fair shot at these schools for the 2014 intake? or should I work for 1-2 years more? I personally want to do it in 2014 but if theres absolutely no chance of me getting one of the top schools with this much background, I would be forced to push my plans to 2015 or 2016.
Can you please advise?
