Building the Future together
I work closely with startups, innovators, scientists, and entrepreneurs by facilitating the integration of different perspectives, resolve differences, create trust and goal alignment in business relationships and by providing them with tools for successful, resilient, and long-lasting collaborations.
Relationships in innovation are complex, often dealing with ownership challenges, different perspectives on how to solve a problem, opposing views on what the success and the purpose of a project mean.
