I help companies translate their technology and ideas into value that reach the customer. My 2 mediums (1) Innovation and (2) Learning & Development (L&D).
I have led various deeptech and digital commercialization teams both w.r.t. startups and corporate environments (raising funds, growing teams, business model and technology validation etc.) I have worked in both university and corporate innovation labs. I am a co-founder and mentor to various startups. For L&D I have led both university and corporate programs (learning & development) on innovation teaching. My programs embody the design thinking & lean startup methodology in an experiential way. I am well able to apply practice to theory which brings me to the combination of (1) and (2). Apart from the above I am a Third-Culture-Kid, I have lived and worked in a variety of countries. My previous roles were strategy & management consultant, university lecturer & programme lead, innovation director and currently I run my own strategy & innovation consultancy. Overall interests and areas I’m able to consult on are - technology commercialization, business models, innovation, entrepreneurship, mindset shift, culture & change management, learning & development, design thinking, digital transformation, setting up an innovation lab, financial modelling for startups.
