Background

About Christina Olivia

I currently work as an independent consultant, where my work ranges from helping students apply to top MBA programs to consulting for start-ups. I have experience developing two social enterprises, and found that I excel in bringing attention to start-ups whether it be through convincing esteemed academics/public figures to serve as advisors, getting big stores to agree to stock relatively unknown products to helping make business plans more compelling. In previous roles, I have worked as a political/finance/human rights journalist in Southeast Asia/Europe and as an editor for Yahoo (back when they were still hot). I'm very passionate about start-ups in general, sustainability, human rights, social media development and bringing people together.

I joined this site mainly because I'm looking to either join a start-up or start an enterprise with others. While I tend to gravitate towards businesses with a strong sustainability concept behind them, I'm open to most start-up ideas, and look forward to connecting with likeminded individuals!
