Background

About SL

The first half of my life was focused on making a living, and the initation of my startup venture/adventure steered the focus of the second half towards the quest for meanings. I am working on new thinking and new routes that are meant to take down (or lower) boundaries and to fill gaps in the global startup community.

I am an INTJ type. A good level of self-awareness helps me navigate through complex circumstances without losing the ground.

I look forward to meeting potential cofounders and investors who have a passion for startup undertakings and founders as real persons, and are willing to take risks and to make concessions where necessary. Business model and monetary returns are important too, but they come second. Purpose comes first.

Potential cofounders with strong expertise in fundraising or psychometric tools development are most welcome at this stage. Solid experience in cross-border/cross-culture projects and reasonable exposure to professional services are big plus.

Hit me with a line or two if this interests you. We could meet over a cup of coffee or schedule a phone call, and see how it goes from there. Thanks!
