Forming and running non-profits requires many of the same skills as a for-profit business. However, there are idiosyncrasies to non-profit formation and operations that should be well understood. I can assist you with identifying which type of non-profit you should form, how to attract supporters, donors, and volunteers, bylaws, operational challenges, and ensuring the long-term viability of your non-profit organization. I sit on the board of directors of an incubator based in Nairobi, Kenya, and sat on the board of directors of a 501c3 non-profit in the US focused on memory care for dementia, including helping guide it through an acquisition. I also founded and presently run a 501c6 business association.
If you are starting a small business or launching a startup venture, I can assist you with overcoming early hurdles, review and discuss your business plan, market, sales and customer acquisition, options for financing your business, common pitfalls, and other topics based on your specific needs. I launched product globally with two startups, and have over 25 years of experience as an investor and technology startup executive. As an early-stage investor, I maintain an active angel investing portfolio and have facilitated over 50 early-stage investments for others. I actively advise and mentor numerous tech startups and traditional businesses.
