Stopping founders running out of $
82% of start ups fail because of cash flow - without focusing on the right metrics and using a traction plan to determine efficient acquisition channels, you risk making your company un-fundable and becoming a statistic.
Focus: Planning and implementation.

Experience & achievements
Kickstarted the Sharing Economy
Built from scratch a quirky brand 'GoCarShare', that whilst causing a lot of sleepless nights and helping me to put on 10kg, kickstarted the sharing economy, leading to me chairing a tradebody. Built partnerships with Glastonbury, Telefonica the Premier League & featured regularly in national press.
Led the organisation of TechBikers Paris > London bike rides. 70 people in the start up ecosystem cycling over 300k and raising money for a charity. > 700k raised to date.
I've been known to ride it on a Brompton!
