Startups are one of the best examples of applied creativity to solve everyday or complex problems adding value to businesses and peoples lives. They have energy and passion to change the status quo and it is just gratifying working with them and being able to share my experience to contribute to their work and avoid some of the pitfalls I have encountered in my journey so that they are better set up for success.

I would like to mentor them on Marketing Strategy, Branding, Communication, International expansion, Business Processes and anything else they require to be successful. I love to build businesses and work with like-minded people to make things happen. Working with SBC is one of the best ways to achieve this, using my past experience to help good ideas strive and have the best possible chance of success. I am looking forward for an exciting and rewarding experience!
