Volunteer: Business Plan for health services in India


I am a student pursuing my MBA at Harvard Business School and leading a team of Harvard MBAs to write a business plan related to healthcare services in India. This is a FPSE (For Profit Social Enterprise). I am looking for 2-3 students to conduct primary and secondary research to aid the development of this plan.

This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to gain exposure to business, writing a business plan, healthcare, entrepreneurship, or emerging markets. The plan also has a major technology-related research component.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Attend weekly Executive Meetings on the Harvard Business School campus
  • Interact with a target list of Harvard alumni for various modules of the plan
  • Understand key strategic elements to tailor and push forward individual work modules appropriately
  • Make regular presentations of key analyses and insights and outcomes of their work
  • Expected work load is 4-5 hours / week

Participants can hope to gain from:

  • Guidance and mentorship to conduct this research from MBA students
  • One-on-one training on creating and executing essential analyses
  • Regular feedback and updates on status of overall plan
  • Broader career mentoring and advice if desired by students (We’re happy to help in any way to recognize your contributions!)
  • Potential opportunities to participate in the post-competition stages of business launch

Participant profile: Position is ideal for premed, business, or engineering undergraduates. The project starts immediately and is expected to last 3 months.

Interested participants can please contact me via email / phone; or send me their resume. By way of background, before joining Harvard Business School I consulted for the Boston Consulting Group in USA and Germany. I am also authoring a book related to chronic ailments in India. I hold a Computer Science Engineering degree from the University of Michigan and have experience launching business divisions while working in Amazon.com, Inc.

Best regards,
