Glad to be joining Astia as a client advisor
November 16, 2012 Comments Off on Glad to be joining Astia as a client advisor
In my opinion, entrepreneurs make the world go around: they’re the real ‘job creators’, and I believe that we should be doing everything possible to encourage them. For example, through Kiva I’ve participated in more than a hundred loans to help up-and-coming businesspeople in the developing world. Over the years, I’ve also been fortunate to have firsthand experience working with some exceptional entrepreneurs in the US, Europe, and Asia. I’ve really enjoyed doing whatever I can to help them move their businesses forward.
In particular, I’ve witnessed the tremendous potential for women-led enterprises. I’m especially proud of the work that my wife has done to start and grow her successful business. Thus, I’m happy to have recently joined Astia as a client advisor. What’s Astia?
Astia is a global not-for-profit organization built on a community of men and women dedicated to the success of women-led, high-growth ventures and to the eradication of the need for the organization within the decade.
I’m looking forward to working with the Astia team and their entrepreneurs.
