I support the growth and scale of dozens of FinTech and InsurTech startups through accelerator and corporate innovation programs, work with Tier 1 financial and insurance institutions to refine and deliver on their innovation strategies, and project manage everything that comes out of our NY office.
I have helped dozens of FinTech and InsurTech startups manage their operations, HR, and growth strategies to scale nationally and globally. Project management is key to success, especially at the early stages, and I make sure startups have the tools, understanding, and platforms to execute successful, scalable businesses.
I also work with some of the world's largest financial services companies to identify and execute on their innovation strategies. They all say they're great at innovation and partnerships with startups but, when pushed, admit that it's all song and dance. I teach them how to DO, not just talk.
I'm lucky enough to work on both sides of the relationship between incumbents and startups and know how to speak both languages that bridge the gap between the two.
My passion is in supporting the growth of FinTech and InsurTech startups through process improvement, operations and project management, and customer service. After 3 years growing startups via accelerators and corporate innovation programs my focus is now on bringing those skills in-house.
