I have 20+ years of experience working with technology companies, from startups to major brands like Sony. I've shipped over 60 products, from enterprise software to consumer targeted iOS/Android apps. My product work has ranged from classic product management and product marketing, to scoping, user stories and mapping out user experiences (although I'm not a UI/UX designer by any means). Much of my career has been spent in strategic marketing and business development. I've created partnerships, corporate and product brochures, websites, press releases, grant proposals, pitch decks, investor decks, promotional videos and many other types of content. I've been a mentor to 30+ startups, raised seed funding, secured Federal grant funding and pitched many VCs and Angel investors. I've also provided Innovation Coaching to large corporations. I have a strong technical background and am used to being a value-add jack-of-all trades. I believe in finding the right solution to a problem, not just the easiest answer. If your project needs professional work, attention to detail and a quality end result, please contact me. I'll be happy to help.

Business culture is my passion. I do my best to get deeper research on businesses, understanding their positions in the market and analyzing their behavior. The deep background gained during taking my bachelor`s degree at Agribusiness and Marketing at Texas A&M University branch of the Republic of Armenia provided me with relevant skills and broad background on marketing and business management. Starting from little business idea presentations to more serious individual researches of local and international businesses provided me with reliable experience and technical knowledge on this issue. Later on, I took my summer internship at one of the leading coffee producing companies in the local market called Rio Grande. I conducted a deep market research on finding out the main competitors in the market and setting the price target for three new types of coffee products. Meanwhile, there were a number of innovative ideas offered by me to boost sales of the product. I got my work experience at Regional Environmental Center of Caucasus of Armenia, being employed there for 3 years as a Project Assistant for several projects. Currently I am writing business plans and project proposals for companies and organizations.

As a senior investment banking executive in the Asian region's financial capital, principal mandate focused on the development of Corporate & Project Finance capabilities for fairly greenfield institutions established to serve as an M&A vehicle, on behalf of primarily ASEAN-based, family-owned & controlled conglomerates, for the acquisition of companies in the more developed economies of the Asia-Pacific region & the Western Hemisphere. This start-up environment enabled a comprehensive & proactive involvement in all nuances of the cross-border M&A process, including deal origination, negotiation, due diligence, pro-forma & sovereign risk analyses, legal documentation, regulatory compliance, preparation of Offering/Information Memoranda, Underwriting Agreements, & investor relations. As a principal provider of financial products & services to emerging enterprises seeking inroads into non-traditional sources of capital, as an alternative to the more conventional intermediate & long-term bank loans, specific operating responsibilities called for the development & implementation of a revenue structure to augment net interest margins with fee-based income from advisory, sub-/underwriting, & syndication transactions, as well as capital gains from carried-interest positions. Subsequent to Asian-based investment banking engagements, spanning a period of almost 25 years, applied Corporate & Project Finance skills & experience to emerging opportunities in the US markets, specifically in the then-nascent industries of Information Technology (IT), Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), & Telecommunications. Consultancy engagements in these industries led to initiatives as founder/co-founder of firms that would exploit the confluence of these previously divergent technologies, to respond to the global imperatives of such combinations, envisioned to eventually warrant cross-border strategic alliances to enable major players to enhance their domestic operations with a global footprint.
