I have been working as a startup mentor for the last 10 years, working with innovators and small entrepreneurs in different areas. I have realized that many innovators especially those with technology-led solutions struggle when designing a product fit for the market and require assistance to do so. I like to focus on tech solutions because I can add value and have a great network in that space.
I have also worked for a startup company as an Operations Manager before that was acquired after one and a half years in operation. A testament to the good work that the small team was doing.

Mentorship motivation

  • 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

Startups provide a new opportunity to solve problems, create new products, and expand to new markets. Engaging them is how I like to spend my day.
I currently work with several innovators in our network and actively mentor a few to grow and scale.
