With over 20 years of experience advising SMEs and a current role as a consultant in innovation management, entrepreneurship, and growth mindset, my interest in mentoring is deeply rooted in empowering the next generation of business leaders. As a former advisor, committee member, and jury member for startup funding programs, I have developed a keen understanding of what drives business success. My mentoring focuses on strategic growth, innovative thinking, and cultivating a resilient mindset—essential tools for navigating the complexities of today’s business environment. I am passionate about fostering diversity and inclusivity within the startup community, ensuring that fresh, diverse perspectives drive the future of industry innovation.

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 mentorship ambition is dual-faceted: I aim to give back to the startup ecosystem, enriching it with my two decades of SME advisory experience, and to forge new connections that benefit both my professional growth and the organizations I represent. My dedication to empowering aspiring entrepreneurs is matched by my eagerness to build networks that foster collaborative success and innovation.
