WHAT I DO: I provide customized business management and growth support for micro and small enterprises in developing countries. I specialize in agribusiness and basic food processing BoP (base of pyramid) companies, and have a particular interest in sustainable development.
HOW I DO IT: I work directly with SMEs and MSMEs in-country. I listen and ask the right questions to gather detailed information, and then evaluate the businesses and business potential, diagnose problem areas, and develop solutions so they can become profitable. The output includes one or more of the following: business plans, counseling, mentoring, market identification, market research, finance sourcing, technical support, marketing materials, training, and workshops. The solutions are always practical and tailored to the unique needs of the business.
WHY IT MATTERS: If we want to eliminate poverty, we need to teach emerging economy business owners how to effectively manage their enterprises and not just administer short term interventions. These are entrepreneurs out of necessity; they are rarely coached in how to run a business. Personalized, longer term incubation is needed to nurture the businesses and enable them to learn in the context of their own unique business challenges.
MY STORY: I spent most of my long career in private sector corporations. I started in food product development, got an MBA, and switched to the business side of the food industry. I spent 2 ½ years in Zurich developing international business experience, and later became involved in corporate social responsibility. Now I devote myself to sharing what I know with those who need it most. I love this stuff.
