Abram Kottmeier

Abram Kottmeier Agency Contractor

Growth and User Acquisition Hacks

United States - Tests: 4

My name is Abram Kottmeier and I'm the CEO of Grow Huge Inc., a growth consultant firm ( Over the last 9-years I've implemented affiliate programs that generated $200M+ in revenue, raised capital for a software start-up that I led, and advised two companies that I helped raise capital for. The key to making a start-up work is identifying minimum viable product and letting your users define how you iterate your product going forward. With me, you can expect to chop your design/development budget in half while we focus on the core value proposition. We'll test small changes and iteratively build your product out based on how your users are actually using your product. These are the principles behind Lean/Agile development and I can help you and your team achieve it. I can also help you team build or find a technical co-founder. Located in San Francisco, I have experience launching lean, getting user traction, and raising capital. Let's talk about how I can help you turn your great idea and market space knowledge into the start-up of your dreams. My areas of expertise include: - Proper company formation (get it right from day 1) - Identifying Minimum Viable Product (keep it lean to start) - Data-driven design/development (test, test, test) - Conversion Funnel Analysis - Affiliate Program Implementation (a great way to scale cheaply) - Ad Zone Implementation (we work with all the major exchanges) - Business Intelligence (finding quicker, easier ways to get from "A" to "B") - Cap Table Management (Building out an Advisory Board etc.) - Creating killer pitch decks - Raising Capital

Srdjan Kovacevic

Srdjan Kovacevic

Financial Expert/Risk Manager

Croatia - Tests: 2

I hold an MSc in Mathematical Finance from University of Oxford, and an undergraduate degree ( in Mechanical Engineering from University of Zagreb. I have been working in finance, on an institutional investor side, for the last 8 years. In this period, I have performed a very wide spectrum of tasks related to the capital markets: setting up investment funds; investment fund mergers; risk modelling/analysis; financial modelling/analysis; company valuations; setting up risk monitoring and control functions; quantitative analysis; writing design specifications for financial software modules & functions, and their implementation; business process design and mapping; design and management of internal regulations on group- and company-level; performing key compliance roles and liaising with the regulating authority; writing prospectuses for UCITS and non-UCITS funds; managed procurement of AMCo authorisation for the provision of MiFID, UCITS, and non-UCITS regulated financial services; setting up MiFID regulated services. However, I have been working closely with many startups, and have invested in a few myself. In recent time, I have been involved with an incubator, where I act as a business/finance mentor. I have also been writing business plans and investment plans for firms of various sizes, and acting as an advisor to clients in various industries, helping them procure equity and debt finance for startups and investment projects. I have experience coding and modelling in Python, VBA, and Matlab, but don't expect wonders: it's mostly been some rather simple work developing specific financial/risk modelling applications, parsing financial data from web sources, etc. I have a deep understanding of energy efficiency and renewable energy, having advised a few clients on project financing in this area. I have been involved in several EU projects as a lecturer, leading internal trainings in financing energy efficiency projects (with focus on energy performance contracting). I am very excited by the developments in the area of cryptocurrencies, and would love to get involved with startups and companies active in this space. I will happily accept payment in BTC/LTC/Đ.
