I have seen hundreds of concepts from their inception from my time at a company builder, corporately, as well as pitches from entrepreneurs. I can help provide rigor to your business model in order to support your decision and launch processes.
I’ve had some role in launching ~15 ventures, and understand the delicate balances between growth, product development, customer segmentation and market identification. The right mindset is to consider all of these unproven and to proceed through experimentation.
I’ve raised capital for startups in the US and emerging markets, and advised a number of entrepreneurs on their strategy. I can provide advice on your pitch, deck, approach, as well as look at creative ways to finance a business.
I have served on and structured a number of boards for startups and the not-for-profit sector.
Coaching and development is key for senior staff at a high-growth company. I’ve had the privilege of coaching a number of high-performance team through their personal and professional challenges, and can share how best to engage your senior team.
