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
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

My goal is to advise entrepreneurs on effectively managing their companies to be successful in the competitive marketplace. My vision is to help entrepreneurs to be able to assess capital needs and startups’ investor readiness, providing recommendations on the fundraising strategy and provide guidance on financial models and investor pitch decks and how to work with investors post-investment. Furthermore, working with entrepreneurs is rewarding in terms of impact and value added as I will be able to help them solve critical challenges and make their most important decisions.
