"I have worked for 10 years helping super early stage founders and I am incredibly passionate about helping people pursue companies in the right direction. Throughout my career I have reviewed over 10,000 startup applications and coached hundreds of founders to raise millions in pre-seed funding. I set up this programme after becoming frustrated with the limited options available to give founders genuine and impartial coaching without giving up equity in a business that is impossible to value at this stage. If you are interested in learning more feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn!"
