You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Fundraising • Monetization • B2B sales • Business Development • Business Strategy

Key Accomplishments

Started and ran a small retail furniture shop in Paris, France around 2002
Acquired 5 companies and sought countless more deals in my current role, mostly small mature tech companies in B2B software and information
Made the final of a startup competition (Spark Chicago 2011) with a great team of people that met that met the night before

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Split responsibilities and accountability for different KPIs, but involvement in all aspects of project

As an Advisor

Constructive skepticism is my forte (identify risks, challenges, scope creep, complex P&L dynamics, balance sheet erosion), along with people skills (motivating and engaging), creative problem solving (business problems, not engineering) and making financial projections
