Top 3 Skills:
1. Know how to stand out of the crowd
2. Creative communications strategy
3. Influencer marketing

Startups are the new engines of our economy and society. They are fueled by young entrepeneurs with great insights and ideas but mainly a lot of contagious passion and hard work to make sure those ideas come to live. In that process it’s essential to make sure you have the right publicity at exactly the right time and aimed at the right audiences. That requires an intelligent communication and influencer strategy where I would love to help them with.
