My expertise in tech project management turns complex innovations into competitive advantages for your company.

Early-Stage Startups

Starting from the earliest stages, I can help budding entrepreneurs crystalize their startup ideas into viable business models. Drawing on my experience of founding six companies, I provide actionable insights into product development, go-to-market strategies, and early-stage business planning.

Businesses Ready to Scale 

For businesses ready to scale, my expertise in capital raising comes into play. Having successfully raised tens of millions in funding for my own ventures – and have also been involved in less successful fund raising and absorbing its lessons – I understand the intricacies of attracting investors and structuring deals. I can provide critical assistance in crafting compelling pitch decks, honing your fundraising strategy, and navigating due diligence processes. I am also available to sit on boards and participate in fund raising if the fit makes sense!


For businesses facing challenges or looking for a fresh perspective, my experience in driving business turnarounds can provide the catalyst you need. I take pride in identifying areas of improvement and strategizing sustainable paths to profitability and growth. My pragmatic and result-oriented approach ensures that the strategies we formulate are not just theoretically sound but also practically implementable.

Mergers & Acquisitions

If your business is contemplating a merger or acquisition, I bring a wealth of expertise to the table. Mergers and acquisitions are complex processes, and successful execution requires thorough planning, intricate negotiation, and meticulous due diligence. Leveraging my hands-on experience in M&A, I can guide you through every step of this process.
From understanding the strategic fit and conducting rigorous due diligence to navigating the intricacies of deal structuring and negotiations, I'll be there. I can also help you address the post-acquisition challenges like integration planning, cultural alignment, and performance optimization, to ensure that the merger or acquisition delivers the expected value.
My goal is to ensure that your M&A transaction is not only successful but also enhances the long-term strategic positioning and value of your business. I'm committed to providing a seamless experience, whether you're considering a strategic merger, planning a friendly acquisition, or preparing for a buyout. Let's make your next M&A move a success.

Exit Strategies

In the mature phase of your business, I offer my expertise in exit strategies. Having navigated three profitable exits, I am adept at maximizing business value, aligning with strategic buyers, and ensuring a smooth transition. I also have a deep rolodex that can get you started in finding your eventual acquirer.

My approach to success is simple, and it all starts with a conversation.

Let's upscale your dreams and get you the results you're looking for.
