Background I’m a trained business strategist, planner & marketer from the globally top ranked entrepreneurship MBA (for a decade running). I also have over a decade experience with start-ups and fast growth companies from inside (as founder) and outside (as consultant) and have created the equity selling tools for them (succeeding in 8-9 figure raises). I’m interested in passing on this learning to other young companies with a great vision because… it’s exciting. I ‘m also a trained product designer, developer, graphic designer and copywriter, with over a decade in brand design & development (Goodby Silverstein & Partners- Porsche, Starbucks, HP), and now in my second decade -concept to shelf on with super premium to mainstream innovative products. From hardware to soft goods. I also, uniquely, have spent several years studying and implementing in IP location and capture practices (and have learned from some of the best, though that learning was not cheap!)

Other add-ons/ options... Additional Fundraising Tools Average time for completion: 3 days I can then do full presentation deck and convert the new executive summary into a contemporary designed teaser. In this process, I can also write new taglines, high concept items, even detail design some of the brand elements. New Tools for Growth. (time dependent on desired scope/depth). At this point, we’ll have a good understanding of the details that make your company remarkable and different, and all the background to be able without paying for weeks of “discovery”. Here I can do everything from designing marketing assets to even coming up with new products (from unique functions to concept design for your use, even down to packaging design and engineering BOMs/etc). If you need a professional well designed and thought out business plan with everything from marketing to financial planning, I can do that. If you need to go beyond into front end design (2D/3D) with brand or new product, I love doing that as well. Your need is my driver. Best, Ren
