Hello, my name is Katya. I am bringing on board about 15 years of experience in revenue generation, sales, marketing and consulting. My latest venture includes building a digital asset-backed lending solution.
I’ve been working across Sub-Saharan Africa for the past 10 years. Having worked in different industries, I am now looking to support and mentor start-ups and entrepreneurs in their early and scale up phases.
Areas where I can support you include:
– development of go-to-market and sales strategies
– coaching sales teams
– PR & Communications strategy development
– Fund raising advice
– International expansion advice
– organisational structure advice

Looking forward to hearing from you,

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

During my time as a Chief Business Officer at APO Group and subsequently as a board member at an early stage start-up, I developed a passion for supporting entrepreneurs and identified many areas where there is a lack of support.
