About

Hi to all of you!

I’ve literally lived the entrepreneurship mindset for ages (starting with the first online community I built as a teenager a decade ago which found “product-market fit” in a “lean” way, before those terms were even part of my vocabulary!).

To sum it up: I help companies nail PMF 🔎 & thrive as product-led ♻️, sales-enabled 🧲 and talent-empowering ones 😊

🔥 I help startups and businesses:
– Find PMF.
– Attract Leads.
– Delight Users.
– Retain Customers.
– and turn them in Brand Ambassadors!


Product-led as in:
– Being, feeling, breathing, living in the shoes of their personas
– “Agilely starting with why in a lean scrum way” if you see what I mean… but not only ^^.
– …

💼 Sales-enabled as in:
– Breaking free from corporate/department/role silos
– Having Marketing + Sales + Customer Success genuinely work together
– …

🔥 Talent-entitling as in:
– Inclusive and/or remote workforce welcoming
– Focusing on growing skills and opportunities for team members
– …

👍 Want me to be your advisor/mentor? 👉 ACT NOW! ^^.

Mentorship motivation

  • I am looking for new investments
  • I like to learn about industries and new businesses
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

Sharing is caring. Teaching is consolidating. Talking is eye-opening!

I love to help because by giving without expectation, I receive so much and in often unexpected ways!
I’ve also always loved passing on (academic support around the family, then first-year mentor in college, and finally startup mentor in several organizations right now).

Being a volunteer startup mentor as I already have been for a while in many other NGOs is what I thrive for (it helps me focus on other things than what I have at hand, and almost always helps me see things differently when I refocus on them thanks to me giving tips on something mostly unrelated! Some neurons might trigger unconsciously… I have no explanation for this phenomena 🙂
