Startup Advice

We understand startups need to act quickly and often pivot the direction taken. With this in mind, I’m happy to act as a technical sounding board for projects, offering ad-hoc advise when needed and at a moments notice. As a guide we can start having conversations for free, limited to 30mins. Then as requirements evolve, we can explore different levels of engagement. Including time in exchange for a percentage of the future venture.
