Most of my career has been in investment banking, helping companies conduct mergers and acquisitions. Part of this work includes analyzing companies's financial statements, market positioning, and overall strengths/weaknesses. I have since transitioned into more business development at a small autonomous vehicle start-up where I help with everything from pricing, to marketing to sales and lots in between. I have a Masters in Business Administration and have also helped serve as a non-voting board observer for a nonprofit environmental justice organization.
How to work with me
What I can offer
I am happy to serve as an extra set of hands (virtually) helping with corporate strategy, market and competitive research, sales and marketing strategy, fundraising, project management and other general corporate functions. I am also happy to help with certain administrative tasks on a case-by-case basis.
My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship
A successful mentoring relationship for me means providing a sounding board for entrepreneurs as they work through their strategic decision making over the short or long term. Specific questions I can be helpful with include:
"what does the market I am entering look like?"
"who are my competitors and what are their strengths and weaknesses?"
"how should I think about fundraising and financing my business?"
"do I have the right marketing messaging to reach my audience?"
How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start
An entrepreneur should prepare by reviewing my Linkedin, and thinking through their key strategic questions they need help thinking through and listing them somewhere. On a case-by-base basis, I would be happy to help with certain administrative tasks so compiling a list of needs there would also be good.
