I help start-ups and entrepreneurs raise funding from venture capitalists or angel investors. My focus is on helping them design robust business models, develop clear and compelling value propositions, conduct market assessments that demonstrate the problem / needs, perform benchmarking of the relevant competitors, and develop prudent go-to-market approach.
