Serial entrepreneur, former VC operating across Asia over 2 decades. I specialize in business development, applied innovation and Asian business culture.
You have been running your company for a while, getting things moving, trying to get some customers but you are stuck. Sales are not increasing, take-ups are not increasing and operations seem to be a grind rather than running smoothly as expected. You need to know what you do not know.
I’m clear of what you need and what can be done for you. I have successfully built technological companies, trading companies, social enterprises, niche industries across SouthEast Asia for over 20 years. Im here to fix problems, not pander to you. This will be a swift tactical call - No Bullshit & No Fluff.
The whole process will take 2-3 calls, over a window of 3 months.
If you are prepared, the 1st call will be 30mins-60mins, 15-30 mins for the second and (if need be)third call. By then, you would have identified, addressed and should have executed the relevant tactics to breathe new life into your business.

Most companies want to expand their operations (be it brick and mortar businesses or online services) and they see SEA as a golden opportunity. They however, do not understand thag SEA is a very diverse region. One where every country within this region is uniquely different. The chances of going into the wrong markets in SEA is high, and a tremendous waste of time and money.
I have over 20 years of hands-on business experience across multiple industries, over 10 years of early stage venture capital experience across SouthEast Asia. Having a session with me will allow you to understand where should be your first point of entry into SEA.
The first call should take between 30-60 minutes, talking about what you are doing, where you want to go, strategy for this region and determining where will be the best entry point in SEA
Follow up: 2-3 calls
Tactical advice and to assist you in putting together a functional, practical work plan for SEA for the first 2 years
Most of you may have come up with a concept by yourself or randomly at some events, I’m here to give you an honest review of your business model.
I have been an entrepreneur since 21 May 1996, having successfully started and sold the various companies I started or co-founded with my partners. Like many others before me, I have also fallen and learned from failures in the form of bad partnerships, market shifts etc. I speak from the standpoint of experience, not academic utopian frameworks.
We will do a 1 hour call, and you will get:
* A critical review and analysis in comparison with what already exists
* A rapid analysis of the market demand and potential and how it might/might not be relevant to your startup
* A basic analysis of your motivation behind this concept (if the motivation if wrong, the entire concept will fall apart - this is one of the biggest reason why companies fail)
I’m the voice of reason, providing you with a critical assessment of your current situation, an objective point of view and straight answers.This one hour call may save you thousands of dollars and months of heartache and wasted effort.
