Pre-MBA Career: Cofounded a real-estate brokerage and oversaw $1M in yearly revenue for 2 years. Working at my brokerage, I conceived of an idea for a real-estate tech app which I built a team from scratch to build and launch, managed a team of 13 concurrent people and a total of 20 different people. My app was able to attract over 200,000 users and I improved conversion rates and more by over 100% year on year. I raised between 250,000-500,000 from investors for the company. I am now trying to sell it and am in discussions with a potential acquirer (not guaranteed it will close of course). While starting to try to sell, 1.5 years ago, I started working as a product manager for a data & gaming company and had a lot of accomplishments there, such as: • Managed international and cross-functional product teams (engineers, product managers, and designers) across SEA, China, and the US • Created and owned a new end-to-end product management process (SCRUM & agile methodologies) – coordinating weekly feature pushes, improving efficiency by 50% and saving months on feature pipeline. • Conceived and put into place a new intra-organizational “ideas and innovations” voting system to galvanize input from members across the company, and more (trying for brevity here even though I've clearly failed). Social impact would be mentoring (as of this month) disadvantaged youth and helping them get into college through a program available where I live, and advising (volunteering) 5 entrepreneurs/businesses in a variety of business / tech related matters.

My GPA is between 3.15-3.2 with some F grades in the record. The reason for this was never missing homework (or even performing poorly on anything, be it tests or assignments), but rather the fact that, at that age (24-25) I was ill-equipped to balance running my first business and going to class. So missing classes led me to get kicked out of 3 courses and receive F grades.
