linkI can:

organize for you the teams in your company

set up and/or improve processes that work (or not) in your startup

help you with modern and pragmatic marketing

spot inefficiencies in how you operate and suggest how to correct them

set up (from scratch) or improve internal communication - it's a "low hanging fruit", since it's a simple matter with which a lot of companies (i.e. managers and board members) struggle

help you translate business needs into technical solutions, ranging from a simple choice of SaaS tools to choosing an enterprise-level self-hosted solution
