about me

Customer and data-driven Innovation for startup growth

Starting my career in finance and investments, and backing my skills with quant financial, data and business analytics, I’ve pivoted and gained vast experience in tech innovation and venture industries from founding and developing deep tech startups to leading digital transformation and managing corporate innovation at the global manufacturing enterprise.
Working through product management, execution and leadership in industry and tech startups, I’ve gained unique experience and knowledge of startup strategy, growth, analytics, marketing and commercialization, as well as built strong knowledge of AI, cybersecurity, and Big-Data technologies.

the book

The methodology presented here for evaluating and managing startup strategy and risks is geared towards the uncertain world of innovative products and enables entrepreneurs and investors to navigate it more confidently.
The book introduces an agile non-cash-flow-based methodology for startup valuation, offering practitioners a holistic risk and innovativeness assessment tool enabling quantification of a startup’s potential for exponential growth throughout its lifecycle.
This guide will be invaluable to practitioners seeking to navigate the complexities of innovation and startup growth, harnessing the potential of cutting-edge products, and shifting the traditional capital-at-risk approach towards an opportunity-at-risk mindset, fostering a healthier investment culture and facilitating the advancement of transformative technologies.
