How did you get into the industry?

I got into the entrepreneurial and investment industry by working with numerous startups to build their companies at an early stage. While running the early stage business builder and accelerator Sieo, my team and I experienced first hand the complexities of raising capital. Founders face a significant lack of transparency into the funding process and rarely have enough information to know whether the investors they are speaking to would be good business partners. Trust is everything, and just because someone wants to put money into your company doesn’t mean it is a good idea to take it.
