I have had the great pleasure of working with an incredibly diverse group of entrepreneurs and startup leaders. From the very early stages of getting product market fit, making their first hires, co-founder relationships and their initial fund raising processes to working through professional and personal challenges as their businesses scale. Below are just a few testimonials from the dozens of clients with whom I have developed a deep coaching relationship over the years.
