I help B2B startup founders

scale their business internationally

My purpose is to help entrepreneurs experience the personal satisfaction and rewards of building a successful global business.

I provide mentoring, training, and create content that combines the best of corporate and entrepreneurial thinking to guide B2B tech startup founders on how to scale their company.

I know how to scale a business

because I’ve done it countless times

I’ve experienced what it’s like to “create something from nothing.”

I’ve built and managed multi-million-dollar businesses for global media corporations like NBCUniversal, ProSiebenSat1 Media, CBS and Turner.

I’ve helped launch media and tech startups – including eEuropeMedia, Brainient, and Antavo – in a dozen countries as an entrepreneur and investor.

I’ve mentored startup founders in medtech, agtech, AI, business services, marketing, and media, teaching them everything I’ve learned over the past 30 years.

I’ve made plenty of mistakes, but I also learned how to take a business from ‘1’ to ’100’.

My mix of corporate & startup experience

gives me an edge

Over my 30-year career, I’ve worked in the media and technology industries while based in New York, Los Angeles, London and Budapest.

I combine corporate & entrepreneurial thinking

to accelerate your growth

Here’s what I’ve learned in 30 years of working in corporate and entrepreneurial environments.

Big companies do lots of planning and make cautious decisions, but often miss out on opportunities because they’re too slow.

Startups execute quickly but often aren’t clear on what they want to achieve and how.

I combine the best of these mindsets – the structured planning of a corporation with the ‘get it done’ attitude of startups – to create an entirely new approach to building a successful business.

I call it ‘The Launch Mindset,’ and it’s the foundation of all the content I produce, and all the mentoring and training I do.

The Launch Code™ captures this mindset into a 9-step business development framework that helps B2B tech startups boost their revenues by adapting corporate planning, sales, and management techniques to a startup environment.
