Key Accomplishments

I like to build & grow businesses. As a founder & CEO of three business I directly oversaw, built & managed all business side areas of a startup (Fundraising, Business Development, HR & Finance, Product, Enterprise Sales & Marketing) from ideation & building to growth & acquisition/exit.

Allan founded & was CEO of HomeSav, a leading product discovery e-commerce platform for unique home décor and design products. HomeSav was acquired by Rebellion Media, a division of private equity firm American Capital http://goo.gl/efhtq1

Allan also co-founded LeapPay a technology enabled online lender that creates lines of credit against outstanding invoices for small businesses that sell to other businesses. In August 2014, LeaPay was acquired by Funding Circle, the largest U.K. based online lender http://goo.gl/I60nzO

Allan also founded Mavencare, is an on-demand web & mobile in-home healthcare company that connects in-home caregivers, seniors and their families.

For from idea conception to the sale of the companies, we’ve raised capital, build team and products and gone from a couple of cofounders to 50+ employees.

What I enjoy thoroughly in the entire process of building up a business from the idea stage to driving growth at companies at I am excited to do it again. I’m a team builder by nature and thrive when ideating around product, business development, building teams, selling & partnering with enterprises and coming up with unique go to market strategies.

Before I entered the startup world, I worked in corporate strategy & business development roles working on identifying business opportunities to invest in & industries & trends that highlighted future growth opportunities & industries. I also have my MBA from Wharton and a law degree which help in running & operating businesses.
