Frequently Asked Questions
With most engagements, I am the sole point of contact. However, for larger projects or those that require specific expertise, I collaborate with a group of seasoned professionals from various industries. My team includes expert strategists, financial analysts, PR professionals, marketing experts, sales executives, and technologists. The team I have assembled serves as a potent think-tank and a valuable resource for nurturing startups to flourish in a competitive environment. Each member of my team is a seasoned entrepreneur, dedicated to fostering a collaborative relationship with every startup that I work with.
I believe in transparent pricing, which serves as the cornerstone of a trustworthy and mutually beneficial relationship. I take no equity and maintain a flexible approach to accommodate various budgets and project scopes. Clients can choose from an hourly rate that starts at $250 (USD), or opt for project-based pricing that aligns with the specific needs and complexities of the project. Like most professional services firms, I will collect a retainer or payment for the project in the beginning of our engagement. This transparent and flexible pricing structure is designed to foster a collaborative environment where our focus is squarely on helping your startup thrive.
No. While I have built strong relationships with numerous investors over the years, my core responsibility lies in being an unswerving advocate for the entrepreneur. To preserve this role and maintain an unbiased perspective, I refrain from making introductions to investors. However, I do actively assist startups in developing effective and sustainable strategies that allow them to identify and connect with the right investors or alternative funding sources. As the old adage goes: it’s better to teach one to fish than to give them a fish. I believe this approach is the best way to build sustainable strategies that align with the startup’s vision and objectives.
