Top 3 Skills
1. Finance
2. Business Strategy
3. Entrepreneurship

Together with the start-up I can review and design their business case, set up financial models and support them with the funding process like creating investor decks and other deliverables needed for investors. I have assisted various investors with making investment decisions (varying from tens of millions to billions) so I have an understanding of the language the other side of the table is speaking and what kind of information they need to base their investment decision on.

I like being challenged with the beautiful business cases many of the startups have. I see a lot of opportunity in most of them and find it a challenge to assist the teams get the most out of it (business wise).
