Founded 1 startup
Imagine you have a great product or solution idea. But you do not have the business chops to get customers. What would you do? Easy - We partner. I can help with lead gen, digital marketing & sales, setting up online sales funnels, reaching out to angels or VCs.
Startups, whether B2B or B2C, are notoriously hard. The failure rate is > 90%. I have been there and done that. I can help you navigate the startup minefield.
Because startups are collaborative, people skills are also required. When the chips are down, I can help with motivating the troops.
I can help with fundraising, partnerships and networking.
