Founder & CEO
"I am looking for passion, a hidden gem, someone who is ready to change lives. If you have a BIG idea and don’t know how to bring it to life, I can probably be a sounding board.
I can teach you how to use Tech for Good, about building a rocket ship / global business, products that change the world, and subscriptions (my favourite business model) and the member economy.
If you’re technical, I can teach you how to work with business/marketing/policy teams. If you’ve never written a line of code, I can teach you how to talk to technical/product/engineering teams.
We could talk about. how to turn what makes you different into what makes you successful, get a start when you don’t have the right connections, degree or CV, or navigate being the only person in the room of a different gender, country or continent."
