How I can help you

After 6 years in international banking, I left banking to start my first company - importing textiles and gift items into the United States. I went on to start a multi-site child care center, and an employment agency focused on the education field- national first of its kind. I directed and trained teams in the fields of recruitment, marketing, sales, operations and customer service. I later successfully sold each of these businesses.

Besides three for profit companies, I also co-founded two non-profit organizations in the Bay Area which are successfully  continuing their operations for the last 25 years!

Since 2005 I have been an active accredited angel investor as the member of Keiretsu Forum- the world's biggest angel investor platform. In September 2012, I co-founded the Istanbul Chapter of Keiretsu Forum  whose members invested over $6 million in global start ups.

At SCORE, I counsel a range of clients, from solo service providers to startup technology companies. I am a hands-on, patient and consistent mentor. Besides being a good listener, I rigorously question business plans so entrepreneurs focus on key issues. I enjoy guiding people and suggesting resources they can leverage.
