Tell us a bit about your dealings with the entrepreneurial world so far
I have been in the business of turning ideas into commercial realities for over 15 years. With a background in product development I have developed and launched a host of new products- some successful, some not so much! I have been consulting to a wide range of industries for the past eight years, helping businesses commercialise new opportunities, launch new products, and figure out how to tackle new markets.
Tell us a bit about why and how you can help
I love watching great solutions blossom, and Startup Weekends make awesome hothouses for just this! I bring along some experience around cracking the harder bits, can connect you with some very useful people, plus I’ve got some good listening ears for the harder minutes or hours over the weekend.
Tell us a bit about why you think TGASW is a good thing?
Startup Weekends are an amazing experience for everyone involved. I love them - this will be my fourth time mentoring in my third different city. You may get something entirely different than you expected out of the experience, but you can guarantee that you will meet some amazing people and deliver way more in 54 hours than you ever thought you could.
Meet Leonie and other exceptional business mentors on September 23-25 - Secure your spot here
