What is your experience with consulting?
Although new to the consulting industry, it’s been an interest of mine for a long time. Throughout college, I participated in every business plan or elevator pitch competition offered. I absolutely loved crafting the perfect pitch deck and finding the right narrative to pitch solutions to prospective customers. The entire startup process excites me like nothing else, and partnering with a startup has always been a personal aspiration. Consulting with our partners about best development strategies is both exciting and energizing to me as a startup junkie!
