Most importantly, I can maximize the impact your business proposal will have on any investor audience from a private investor to partnering institutional funds.

    I've operated, invested in, and advised startups that raised > $3B from VCs like Softbank Vision Fund and Founders Fund, went public on the NYSE and NASDAQ, and scaled to tens of millions in revenue. Now, I help my clients accelerate revenue, secure capital, and find product-market fit — the trifecta driving exponential growth. Remember, 92% of businesses fail due to slow growth; let's ensure you're not part of that statistic. With my Expert-Vetted (top 1%) and Top Rated Plus (top 3%) status on Upwork, 5-star ratings on Fiverr, Trustpilot, and Clutch, and > 5,000 followers on LinkedIn, I've established a strong reputation. My insights and success stories have been featured in outlets like Fast Company, Zapier, HubSpot, and beyond. Explore further: discover the common challenges my clients face, understand how I resolve them, learn about my background, and find out about the types of clients I'm eager to collaborate with. 🔥 Common client challenges 🔥 92% of ventures crash and burn due to slow growth. The culprits? Weak go-to-market strategy, starved funding, and lousy product-market fit. I call these the triple threat to growth: • Go-to-market strategy: When revenue plateaus because your organization can't keep pace, it's time to recalibrate your go-to-market playbook and infrastructure across the AAARRR funnel. • Venture capital: Capital is the lifeblood of growth, yet a scant 1% of startups manage to secure it. Crafting an investor-ready case amid competing priorities is no small feat. • Product-market fit: Traction stays flat without a product that clicks with customers. If progress feels like an uphill battle, it's time to adjust your product or pivot to a new market. 🚀 How I resolve your challenges 🚀 As a full-stack growth strategist and operator, I take the triple threat to growth head-on with a portfolio of services including: 🥷🏽 Go-to-market services: • Go-to-market strategy: ideal customer profiles, channel selection (based on my list with > 150 growth tactics), messaging, playbooks (sales, marketing, customer success), content strategy, pipeline audits • Go-to-market execution: sales and marketing funnels, demand creation (long-form content, YouTube, social media), paid ads (Google, Reddit, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Xing), sales (email, social, calls, negotiations), channel partnerships, white-hat link building, marketplaces • Go-to-market infrastructure: trainings, sales decks, one pagers, lead lists, conference lists, CRM (ex: HubSpot, Pipedrive, Zendesk), automation (ex: Zapier), analytics 🦸🏻 Venture capital services: pitch deck creation, pitch deck reviews, pitch simulations, elevator pitches, data room reviews, fundraising strategy, investor lists, investor outreach, financial models, valuation reports, market sizing 👩‍🚀 Product-market fit services: customer research, competitive analyses, market research, product strategy, pricing strategy, (re-) positioning, KPIs for SaaS and DTC, UX/UI audits, product wireframes, landing pages 💪🏼 My background 💪🏼 Before founding Zendog Labs, I worked as a Principal at Roivant and was the Co-Founder of Eatearnity and Maison Baum. Roivant is a principal investment firm that raised billions in funding, built a portfolio of > 35 startups, and went public on the NASDAQ. My key contributions at Roivant included taking Lokavant, our enterprise SaaS business, from $1 to $6M in ARR in < 2 years, enabling a $21M Series A led by Edison Partners, and spearheading Roivant's first acquisition of a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical asset. Back at Eatearnity, I built a B2B2C marketplace that scaled to $1M in ARR, acquired tens of thousands of consumers, loyal B2B customers, and excited investors. And Maison Baum is still a thriving business under the leadership of my former co-founder. I started my career in consulting and banking and am proud to have led ~40 PzGren as Deputy Platoon Leader in the Swiss Army, the special forces of our armored infantry. I hold degrees from some of the best US and European business schools (Duke, LSE, St. Gallen, Bogazici). 👨‍🚀 About Zendog Labs 👨‍🚀 We are the strategic partner for startups, investors, and enterprises navigating the frontier of innovation.
