Expert Vetted | Business Consultant | 2x Founder

◼️ BACKGROUND I am an expert in my area of focus with 6 years of entrepreneurial and diverse business and startup experience. I hold an undergraduate degree from Purdue University and will be pursuing an MBA in the near future. I currently reside in downtown Chicago by way of Sao Paulo, Brazil. I am creative, forward thinking and have a proven track record of taking ideas from the conceptual stage to fully operating businesses with my own startups. Preparing the required documents that investors must see to evaluate your company’s investment opportunity takes experience and time. Through building my own startups, and working with clients, I know exactly what investors are looking for when evaluating startups. I will carefully guide you through the entire process and prepare the required collateral to peak an investors curiosity and to raise capital. I have worked with clients (100+ companies) from pre-seed to series C, and beyond, including my own funded startups. I know what investors and accelerators are looking for (Y-Combinator, TechStars, 500 Startups, et al.) when sizing up startups.
