Former private equity professional, turned founder: I have worked with cross-border private equity funds as well as in private equity focused consulting for close to ten years. Having carried out many due diligences with teams of experienced industry experts, my approach is to dig deep to really understand of drivers of a business' performance. Having worked with portfolio companies as a board observer I know how markets and companies can change over time. This helped me in developing a long term view and in looking beyond the surface. Now I focus my time on IRRlabs.com. I use the site to offer the toolkit, which we applied in private equity to individual investors. My focus is on providing investors with structured analysis of companies and industries. Next to that I spend my time mentoring two startup companies.
