How to launch your Startup and get Early Funding
Ask me about: Creating and validating a business model, finding a target customer with a real problem, getting early funding (spoiler: let me prepare for accelerator programs that will provide around a $50k investment) and building products your customers will love. I've done most of the mistakes in the book and hopefully I can help you avoid most of them. The one I feel most passionate about; building something no one wants to buy. Hence you'll often find me talking about the Lean Startup approach. I'm a certified Continuous Innovation trainer and I love the framework (Running Lean, Scaling Lean). My background is a mix of product design and business development from enterprise and startups in Finland and the Middle East. I'm a co-founder and CXO of RideHoop - a ridesharing platform, advisor and product owner of Layette - the award winning pregnancy app and co-founder of Next Level - a boutique consulting agency. I mentor startups at Oman Tech Fund and few other programs. What you hear me saying a lot: "Right time is always now."
