I dont have any MBA and in tech strategy. What makes you think you need an MBA? Although I did code before college and double majored in undergrad with 2 biz degrees...not sure if MBA is a requirement.

MBA isn't a requirement but certainly is the most sure way to get your foot in the door for most strategy practices, Technology Strategy included. OP, other than an MBA a referral might be your best bet. If you don't have any friends/colleagues that can do that , you might try reaching out to people on LinkedIn that you have some sort of connection with (e.g., went to the same undergrad, used to work at IBM, etc.) I'm assuming you've already checked all the company job portals for relevant positions as well
