As an MBA candidate at Cass Business School, I am enhancing my expertise in finance, strategy, quantitative methods and innovation commercialization. I am passionate about new venture creation and was awarded the Cass MBA Entrepreneur Scholar Award. I have been a finalist in three European business development competitions and am consulting for two startup companies. I have over 8 years of experience in the areas of business development, enterprise management, corporate relations, corporate finance, strategic planning, new media and marketing. As the CEO of a national non-profit organization, I also built an expansive network and strong portfolio of commercial clients who actively support the work of social enterprises.
