We coach founders to become experts in growth and avoid the mistakes that can cost your business thousands.
I’ve spent my whole career working with startups at every stage from ideation to scale as a founder, early stage investor, and mentor. I can help you “earn your secret” and identify your Minimum Viable Segment at the beginning, as well as design a revenue model with unit economics fit for scaling once you’ve got product-market fit. What really interests me is helping people make a living by following their curiosity, doing what they like to do, are good at, and care about. I’ve worked with hundreds of founders including scientists, artists, designers, and social entrepreneurs to help them design, grow and scale their businesses. Those who wanted high growth ventures have raised more than £10m collectively. Most of the others who just wanted to bootstrap and remain independent instead are also still going strong.
I'm an early-stage startup expert who's seen 2000+ startups launch and has worked with dozens of startups and corporate innovation teams on the development, launch, and growth of new initiatives. I've also built and sold two of my own products. Most notably is Startup Stash, a curated directory of resources and tools for startups that's been used by 1M+ people. I'm here to help people in the early stages of their ideas (from Mindset, to MVP to launch). But also business, marketing and community strategy.
I'm a multidisciplinary engineer, serial entrepreneur, and startup mentor. As a multidisciplinary engineer, I've built 200+ products (concentrating on agtech, medtech, and miltech). As a serial entrepreneur, I focus on deploying field-capable ruggedized sensors and diagnostics. As a startup mentor, I've worked with 1,000+ teams (concentrating on upfront prototyping and ideation as well as SBIR and technical hurdles). Additionally, I teach Disciplined Entrepreneurship, I-Corps, Lean Launch, and Rapid Prototyping. Currently, I have Entrepreneur In Residence and mentor roles across the US and abroad spanning economic development, universities, accelerator, and incubator programs.
