I am an enterprise support professional who is passionate about organizational sustainability. Mentorship is one hand holding initiative that works wonders in developing skills and capacity of entrepreneurs for the sustainability to eventuate. Nothing is as good as knowing you have a shoulder to lean on and an ear to call on as one navigates to treacherous journey of enterprise building. I would love to be that person that such enterprises looks up to for support because I know I have the experience, the skills and the expertise.

My interests and focus areas span both the supply and the demand side. On the supply side (VCs, PEs, angel investors among others), my focus is the investee company viability assessment in regards to financial, technical, market, associated risks, regulatory and legal frameworks etc.

On the demand side, my focus is ideation and viability profiling, access to finance, capacity and skills development for the leaders and teams, operations and value chain optimization, access to markets and business linkages
