I help founding teams think better and faster.

I run sketchnoting workshops in hourly sprints that help incubated teams to think better and reach their short term startup goals faster.

As a trainer, I make learning my methods really easy. No jargon.

When we work together, I help you bring to life your ideas with an understanding of all touchpoints because I design for them all: digital, services, physical products and spaces.

Startup founder of the week

How do I create a value proposition for a product with a new market?

We’ll help Tat Banerjee of QBLM create a value proposition for his AI software that translates videos into videos with subtitles of all languages. 

I’ve modified Ben Crothers’ Value proposition canvas to work specifically for teasing out the value proposition of a startup that has a product the market has never seen before. We’ll use it in 3 steps:

  1. Work out the needs and pains of the early adopter (just like using an empathy map) and list the benefits of using Tat’s product.

  2. Then check to see how well aligned the benefits are is solving the pains and needs.

  3. Why is Tat’s idea a must have, and if not what features are missing to make the ultimate sales pitch?


If your startup idea could do with a little nudge in a constructive direction through groupwork, let me know in advance and we’ll book it in.
