Using the Silicon Valley playbook and 12 years of experience I help startups around the world accelerate company growth by building a scalable and repeatable marketing function through a systematic approach to thinking, problem-solving, and acting on growth initiatives. All this enables them to reach their next round of funding faster.
Attending companies achieved exponential growth, expanded their business to new countries and most of all secured their next round of funding ranging from $1 million to $20 million dollars.
My digital marketing journey
It all started at Mindvalley, a world-wide publishing company, where I served as Senior Partner, being in charge of developing multi-million dollars online marketing strategies and setting up business automation, both of which are still being used today.
Next I’ve joined the biggest venture capital in the world with a headquarter in San Francisco that till today have invested in over 2200 startups worldwide.
Over the years I have led eight accelerator programs called Series A Program in Singapore and Malaysia.
I worked with over 500 amazing startup teams from all over the world, including countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Korea, Japan, Russia, Germany and Saudi Arabia.
I work very closely with Google and Facebook to learn about their new tools as well as market trends and behaviours based on the advertising data gathered by them.
In the meantime I have co-founded a boutique agency that specialises in setting up digital foundation in terms of marketing, advertising, analytics and reporting for e-commerce startups.
I will enable you with a set of actionable frameworks that you can apply to your own business and product to build a winning strategy. By the end of our collaboration you will have a comprehensive foundation that you can apply to almost any B2C or B2B company.
I select companies I work with based on the following criteria:
Models of cooperation
Hands-on company deep dive
3 months to 1 year
agile, hands-on approach to think, solve and act on growth initiatives to explode sales conversion rates
focusing on creating strategy that includes acquiring quality traffic, better conversion and customer retention
one evening events focused on new customer acquisition and retention
Startups that seek growth mentorship
raise 700% more money,
and enjoy 350% better user growth.
Poor growth management
is the primary reason 90% of startups
72% of startups are forced to pivot
upon realising their initial intellectual
property is not a competitive advantage.
The average startup underestimates
its market validation phase by 200–300%
– and as a result are pressured to grow prematurely.
