We start the story of Mike Devlin FTMBA 2019 from a humble background with an Indian tiger mom and an American father. Mike initially walks us through his background in investment banking, private equity, and his passion for tackling our health and healthcare using his unique background and set of skills.
Next, we learn how Mike was forged from a kiln at the peak of Mount Everest… just kidding. I initially heard about Mike running across the country in 90 days from his fellow classmates. I was just as curious as you are to what drives an individual to run across the country for a great cause, such as for ALS, and the kind of physical and, more importantly, mental fortitude required to tackle such an endeavor.
Haasies are known to have tackled great feats in one form or another and Mike’s story is one that reminds us that it only takes the ordinary (just a man, a will, a brother, and a van) to achieve the extraordinary. Moreover, the journey of a thousand miles (or almost three thousand) begins with one step (in front of the other)… and Confucius forgot to mention, a LOT of mindless pop music.
