These assets allow Leo to view early stage start-ups through the lens of their potential corporate future. By doing that, Leo helps you set up your company with a clear focus on sustaining rapid growth cycles and large teams. He advises start-ups on how to make sure that planning, budgeting, staffing, accounting and reporting for the business goals of your start-up don’t get lost in the highly turbulent times of early stage companies. To not leave these topics on an advisory level only, Leo recently left the corporate world to join a European start-up in a longer term operational role.
