From MBA to Entrepreneur
Taking a risk is never easy. A few months ago, as I was nearing completion of my MBA at NYU Stern, I was faced with a choice: should I take a traditional job in consulting or do something more entrepreneurial? I was torn between my head and my heart. After agonizing over the decision for some time and talking to many people, I decided to take the leap and try something more entrepreneurial. I’m using this summer to see whether I can land on a compelling startup idea that I feel passionate about.
I do not yet know how this decision will turn out or whether I even made the “right” choice. However, I have decided to use this blog to chronicle my journey and the lessons I have learned so far, as I navigate the start-up scene in new york city. Hopefully my experiences will be helpful to others considering the entrepreneurial route or to those who are simple interested in learning more about the tech startup world from the perspective of a “business guy.” In my next post, I will discuss in more detail the factors I considered in making my decision to try the entrepreneurial route versus the more traditional path, as my sense is that many others (particularly MBAs) are faced with a similar choice.
