Why are you passionate about working with startup founders?
I see startups as the epicenter of innovation. They represent the breeding ground for groundbreaking ideas and novel solutions to age-old problems. The creative energy that permeates startup environments, where individuals dare to dream and then relentlessly work to turn those dreams into reality, is undeniably inspiring. It's this very innovation that I believe holds the power to reshape industries, disrupt the status quo, and even make the world a better place. Working with startup founders is a multifaceted one, driven by the desire to be part of innovation, solve complex problems, support the entrepreneurial spirit, create a positive impact, continually learn, offer mentorship, and build meaningful relationships. It's a passion deeply rooted in a belief that startups have the power to shape the future, and I am committed to being a part of that transformative journey.
