I am an entrepreneur in the financial infrastructure domain, and a freelance consultant that offers multidisciplinary expertise across the domains of technology-driven businesses, finance and business law. However, I do not provide services that require a license (i.e. investment advice, investment management, legal defense, patent filings, etc.). I am coming from academia and I am in my early 30’s.
Past consultancy work was for instance for a US-based niche consulting firm in a subcontracting capacity to create input for a report on crowdfunding – this report is considered to be the most authoritative one in this niche industry of $17bn (the report is for instance referenced by A-list publications like Forbes, Business Week, The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Techcrunch, Venturebeat, etc.). I also provided consultancy for a boutique consulting firm in a similar subcontracting role to create input for a report for the European Commission. Recently, I also served a European stock exchange which operates multiple segments (a Regulated Market and multiple Multilateral Trading Facilities), and a European venture capital investment firm.
Domains of current consultancy work, and domains that mostly interest me, are: securities clearing and settlement, payment infrastructure, securities trading infrastructure, crowdfunding, fintech, clean tech and venture capital.
Feel free to browse around, or to get in touch if you have a project or file you want to discuss with me.
